Not sure about new destinations. Though they have started non-stop Seoul to Siem Reap twice a week with A320.
For deliveries, they are to take one 772ER, two A330-300s, and at least one A320 this year.
There's probably more A320-series arriving as the 734 are gradaully being phased out. I wonder what will replace the small fleet of 735s: A318 or A319. It would be silly to get a totally different aircraft.

Quoting N77014 (Reply 2): Are they unique in Asia for utilising a fleet of narrowbodies?
Korean Air has 737's, Japan Airlines has 737's and MD-80/90's, All Nippon has 737's and A320's, Dragonair has A320's, China Airlines has 737's, airlines in the PRC have all manner of single-aisle jets. I see nothing unique about Asiana's narrowbodies as far as Asian carriers are concerned.

I gather Asiana is starting flights to Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia but there are no signs of them flying to the mainland (ie Penang or Kuala Lumpur). Currently Malaysia Airlines and Korean Air have built up quite a schedule between Seoul and KL/Penang which may be hard for Asiana to compete with... Go Skyteam+MAS!!!
