The deal includes an additional four A330-200s, which will help the airline alleviate capacity problems caused by its A380s arriving almost two years late. Qantas now has 20 A380s on firm order, due for delivery from August 2008 to 2015. The four A330-200s will arrive between December 2007 and December 2008. The airline's latest contract includes protection against further delays in A380 deliveries and rescheduling rights in the event of changed circumstances. Meanwhile, Qantas has ordered five more Boeing 737-800s for delivery from February 2008.</P> <P> <HR> </P> <H2>Singapore deal to launch PC-21 production</H2> <P><STRONG>TRAINERS</STRONG> Singapore's Ministry of Defence has announced its selection of the Pilatus PC-21 to replace its air force Aermacchhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Briefing-7-November-2006-210412/
