Thai Airways International has reported it plans to take receipt of two of the latest model Airbus 350 aircraft in August and September 2016, the company said.
The two A350 XWBs are among 12 aircraft ordered by the Thai flag carrier with the rest being delivered next year. The two aircraft, designed to operate long-haul flights, will be used to serve flights between Bangkok and Melbourne, Australia.
A350 XWB (Xtra-Wide-Body) is the latest model of the wide-body aircraft family and comes with cutting-edge technology.
The Airbus price list says the current cost of such an A350 is USD355.7 with price dependent on design weights, engines choice and level of selected customization.
The airline plans to launch three weekly flights between Bangkok and Tehran, Iran, on Oct 1, and will also resume flights between Bangkok and Moscow on Nov 1. The route was suspended last year as part of the airline´s restructuring plan.
