MAS Fleet Order In September

Mon Jul 25, 2005 2:29 pm

According to a Bloomberg's report, MH will lease five 737-800s as early as in October to open up new destinations in India and China.

Speaking of the lease arrangement, Rashid Khan, the airline's executive also revealed that the company may make a decision on its 737-400 replacement by September. However, he added that today's announcement to lease Boeing planes does not mean MAS will necessarily pick the U.S. aircraft maker.

Malaysian Airline is reportedly getting as many as 50x planes to replace its 39x Boeing 737-400 aircraft. It is also considering the proposed A350 aircraft by Airbus and Boeing's 787 model, according to Germal Singh Khera, the airline's assistant general manager of international affairs.

Would the B787/A350 order be announced at the same time?
