Cathay Orders 30 A350-900s As Future Standard Mid-Size Widebody
The Airbus A350-900 will form the backbone of the mid-size, widebody fleet of Hong Kong’s Cathay Pacific Airways after deliveries under a planned order for 30 begin in 2016.
Cathay, announcing a hefty rise in profits based on passenger revenues almost back at pre-crisis levels, says it will also order six Boeing 777-300ERs under purchase rights previously negotiated.
The carrier values the intended orders at HK$75 billion ($9.7 billion), based on catalog prices.
