Taiwanese airline company Eva Airways Corp has officially sealed a significant deal with Airbus, solidifying an order for 33 aircraft, as confirmed by the French plane manufacturer on Tuesday.

The agreement, initially disclosed in November of the previous year, encompasses 18 long-range A350-1000s and 15 single-aisle A321neo planes.

While the precise value of the freshly finalized deal remains undisclosed by Airbus, Eva Airways previously indicated a potential worth of up to $10.1 billion in a filing with the Taiwan Stock Exchange. The breakdown suggested a cost of up to $436 million per A350-1000 and up to $150 million per A321neo.

Clay Sun, President of EVA Air, emphasized the selection of modern, fuel-efficient aircraft aligned with the company’s sustainability objectives, citing significant reductions in carbon emissions.

Industry sources have hinted at Airbus potentially breaking aerospace order records in 2023.

Deliveries of airplanes are projected to reach approximately mid-730s, surpassing the company’s original target of 720.

Airbus is expected to officially announce these yearly orders and deliveries on Thursday.
