Air China to order 20 Airbus A350-900 more

Beijing, China - Chinese flag carrier Air China orders 20 Airbus A350-900 widebody jets from Airbus.

On July 11, Air China announced that it would place an order for 20 more Airbus A350-900. The contract is worth $6.54 billion at list prices, but airlines usually get remarkable discounts on bulk orders.

Air China will take delivery of the first aircraft in 2020. According to the agreement signed with the European aircraft manufacturer, all planes will be delivered to the Chinese state carrier by the end of 2022.

The deal includes the conversion option of five A350-900 to the A350-1000, the larger variant of the A350XWB family.

Air China currently has ten A350-900 in service. The airline received its first A350-900 in August 2018.
