Thai Airways Finalizes A350, A320 Orders

Thai Airways has finalized its deal with Airbus for A320 narrowbodies and A350 widebodies purchases.

The deal, first announced in June, sees Thai buying four A350-900s and five A320s, as well as agreeing to lease eight A350-900s and six A320s. The latter are already in the Airbus orderbook.

Thai is due to receive its first A350-900 in 2016, with the first owned A320 coming in 2014. The first leased A320 is due next year.

At the time it announced the first commitment to the Airbus A320 and A350, Thai Airways also announced plans to buy six 777-300ERs and lease eight 787s.

All the leases are for 12 year terms.

Thai is still considering additional fleet purchases for a total of 38 aircraft for delivery between 2018-2022.
