European aircraft maker Airbus on Wednesday announced deals for its planes worth up to $5.4 billion (4.4 billion euros). Airbus said at the Farnborough airshow that it had won a firm order from US leasing company CIT for 10 of its long-haul A330 planes worth $2.3 billion at list prices. \"When a leading leasing company like CIT, places a repeat order for our aircraft, we take that as a strong sign of customer satisfaction,\" said Airbus chief executive Fabrice Bregier. Airbus added that Hong Kong-based China Aircraft Leasing Company had committed to buy 36 of its A320 single-aisle planes together worth $3.1 billion. \"This is an important milestone for CALC,\" said the Chinese group\'s chief executive Mike Poon. \"We have a long-term commitment to the aviation industry and are very pleased to establish a relationship with Airbus.\" The deal includes a commitment to buy eight A321s, the largest member of the A320 family, but none of the manufacturer\'s future A320neos.
