Sri Lankan Air To Buy A330s, A350s

Fri May 24, 2013 2:07 pm

Sri Lankan Airlines has signed a provisional deal with Airbus to buy six A330-300 and four A350-900 aircraft for delivery between 2014 and 2023. The carrier signed a memorandum of understanding on the purchase with Airbus last Friday. The A330s will replace the six A340-300s Sri Lankan currently operates.

So, the A330s are an interim solution to replace the A340s asap and the A350s will replace the A330s in the long-term.
What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived.

Thanks Karel.
I think Airbus will have a blast with firm announcements at Paris.
Hopefully the A380 will join the A320, A330 and A350's order feast.
