SriLankan Airlines added an Airbus A320 and A330 aircraft to its fleet in 2012, according to an annual report by the Central Bank of Sri Lanka.

The carrier, however, did not specify if the two aircraft were used to replace older aircraft or for fleet expansion.

The Flightglobal Ascend Online database suggests that the A330-200 is registered 4R-ALJ and is leased from Air Lease Corp. The A320, registered as 4R-ABP, was delivered in April 2012 and is being leased from CIT Aerospace.

Data from Flightglobal Pro shows that SriLankan Airlines operates a fleet of eight Airbus A320s, seven A330-200s and six A340-300 aircraft.

The airline's employees hold a 5.3% stake in the airline, while the government of Sri Lanka owns the rest of the company.
