AIRBUS has won the race for Cathay Pacific’s mid-size fleet renewal with an order for 30 Airbus A350-900 XWB aircraft for delivery between 2016 and 2019. Rolls-Royce Trent engines will power the Toulouse-built aircraft. The A350-900 variant is capable of flying over 8,000 nautical miles non-stop, which will enable Cathay to operate the 'planes across its network, including on non-stop flights to Europe and North America. The airline has also expressed its intention to exercise existing purchase rights in respect of six Boeing 777-300ERs, bringing its 777 fleet up to 30 by the end of 2012. The Hong Kong-based airline currently operates a fleet of 128 wide-body aircraft including 25 freighters. www.cathaypacific.com
