SriLankan Airlines has signed an agreement with ILFC to lease three Airbus A350-900s as part of its long-haul fleet renewal.

The Sri Lankan flag carrier has agreed to lease the aircraft on 12-year terms, with deliveries expected to take place between July and September 2016.

The airline announced in June that it would order four A350s and six Airbus A330-300s at the Paris air show. At that time, it said that it would lease the additional three A350s to give it a total fleet of seven.

ILFC says that the carrier also leases two A330-200s and one A340-300 from it.

Flightglobal Pro shows that SriLankan operates an all-Airbus fleet of 20 aircraft.
