Virgin confirms order for 10 Airbus A330 aircraft

Virgin Atlantic has bought six A330-300 long-range aircraft from Airbus, and is leasing a further four from AerCap.

The contract was completed on Dec. 30, 2009, following an initial announcement in June.

Industry analysts say Airbus could surpass its 2009 target of 300 orders after a scramble to firm up provisional orders or book new ones in time for the year’s closing amid signs some airlines are starting to look beyond the downturn.
