SriLankan Airlines has signed an MoU with Airbus for six A330-300s and four A350-900s.

The airline, an all Airbus operator, has chosen the A330 and the latest generation A350 XWB aircraft as part of its long-haul fleet renewal.

The efficiency, reliability and passenger appeal of our in-service A330s form the pillar of SriLankans long haul operations, said Kapila Chandrasena, CEO of SriLankan Airlines. Adding more new A330s to our fleet, combined with the unbeatable economics the A350 XWB will offer, allows us to achieve a strong economical performance.

The twin engine A330 is one of the most widely used widebody aircraft in service today. Airbus has recorded more than 1,200 orders for the various versions of the aircraft and nearly 1,000 aircraft are flying with nearly 100 operators worldwide.

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