Airbus receives orders for two 'VIP' versions of ultra long-haul A340 planes

European plane maker Airbus said Monday that it has received orders for two "VIP versions" of its ultra long-haul A340 aircraft from two new customers.
The customers did not want to be identified, an Airbus spokesman said. One customer ordered an A340-500 and the other ordered an A340-300, the company said.
"Airbus has won two new customers for VIP versions of its ultra long-haul A340s," the company said in a statement, referring to airplanes that typically target individual, government and business customers. The VIP versions offer different interiors to those of commercial airlines.
The value of the order was not disclosed.
Shares in Airbus parent European Aeronautic Defence and Space Co. rose 1 percent to euro24.83 (US$32.09) in Paris trading.
