Cathay Pacific has issued a request for proposals for the financing of eight Airbus A350s to be delivered next year, FlightGlobal understands.

The Hong Kong carrier is open to all forms of financing, says a source who has seen the RFP.

Flight Fleets Analyzer indicates that Cathay has 20 A350-1000s and nine A350-900s on order. It already has 19 A350-900s in service.

Cathay did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
