Airbus has confirmed cancellations for its single-aisle family from two airlines.
Indonesian low-cost carrier Tigerair Mandala has cancelled a long-standing order for 25 A320-200s. The airline, an associate of parent Singaporean Tigerair Group, had lodged the order as long ago as 2007, but none had been delivered.
Tigerair Mandala’s website lists a fleet of nine A320-200s on strength as of Feb. 28.
Airbus also confirmed Air Serbia has dropped an order for eight A319-100s. Initially ordered under the airline’s previous identity of Jat Airways, the rebranded carrier announced at last November’s Dubai Airshow that it would instead purchase 10 A320neo from the large order for Airbuses placed by Etihad Airways.
Etihad became a 49% shareholder in Air Serbia last summer, and has a management contract for the Balkan airline.
Air Serbia was able to transfer a longstanding deposit for Airbus aircraft to the new order.
