AirAsia confirmed (29-Oct-2009) it has signed an amendment agreement with Airbus to defer the delivery dates of eight A320 aircraft, originally scheduled for delivery in 2011, to the year 2014 and 2015. As a result, the original delivery of 23 aircraft in 2011 will be reduced to 15 aircraft. The original number of deliveries in 2014 will also be increased from 18 aircraft to 24 aircraft, whereas in 2015 the carrier will take delivery of two aircraft as opposed to none. AirAsia cited infrastructure constraints at Kuala Lumpur International Airport's LCCT as the reason behind the deferments. [more]
