Mr. Fabrice Bregier, Airbus Chief Executive Officer said that this is the biggest contract of this manufacturer with Japanese airlines. The new aircrafts will improve the performance and competitiveness of the carrier, said Mr. Yoshiharu Ueki, President of Japan Airlines.

A350 is a fuel-efficient aircraft, competing directly with Boeing 787 Dreamliner of America. In recent years, the airline industry has been harmed by the air transport demand declining and fuel price increasing. Therefore, many airlines are turning to purchase the fuel efficient aircrafts in an effort to reduce costs and maintain profitability.

Also according to Airbus, A350 saves more than 25 % of fuel consumption than the previous aircraft generations. Before gaining the contract with Japan Airlines, Airbus had sold 725 A350 aircrafts.

It is expected that after Japan Airlines, Airbus will have more contracts of selling aircraft to other airlines in Asia including Vietnam airlines.
