Airbus confirms Cathay

CATHAY PACIFIC AIRWAYS has concluded the purchase agreement with Airbus for the delivery of 30 A350-900 aircraft, representing the carrier's largest ever single aircraft purchase.  Deliveries will begin in 2016 and are scheduled to stretch over a three-year period.  The all-new A350-900 XWB ('Extra Wide Body') will serve principally long haul destinations in Europe.  The aircraft is Rolls-Royce Trent powered and is expected to deliver improved payload range capability at competitive costs, at the same time providing high standards of passenger comfort and safety.  Cathay Pacific currently operates a fleet of 128 wide body aircraft and with the Airbus A350 now has a total of 60 aircraft on firm order.  Last month the airline also expressed its intention to exercise existing purchase rights for six more Boeing 777-300ER ultra long haul aircraft, which would take its total order for the type to 36. www.cathaypacific.com
