Singapore Airlines (SIA) has increased its orders for the Airbus A350 XWB with an additional 30 A350-900s, plus options for a further 20 aircraft.

The agreement firms up a commitment announced last month. Under the terms of the agreement, Singapore Airlines will be able to select either the baseline A350-900 or the larger A350-1000 when exercising the options.

This is the third order from Singapore Airlines for the A350 XWB. The deal sees the carriers total firm orders for the all-new aircraft increase to 70, plus 20 options.

Singapore Airlines will operate the A350 XWB on long haul and regional services.

The A350 XWB is an all-new mid-size long range product line comprising three versions and seating between 270 and 350 passengers in typical three-class layouts.

The extensive flight test programme for the A350 XWB is now underway, following a successful first flight last week.

Entry into commercial service of the first customer aircraft is scheduled for the second half of 2014.
