Malaysia Airlines has received the first of six Airbus A350-900s it is leasing from Air Lease.
"We have worked closely with Malaysia Airlines Berhad on this six-aircraft transaction as they roll out a major widebody fleet upgrade," states Jie Chen, the US lessor's executive vice-president and managing director for Asia.
"We are confident that these six A350 XWB aircraft leased to MAB will benefit their global business operations."
Flight Fleets Analyzer indicates that the carrier is scheduled to have received two A350-900s by year-end. The first aircraft, MSN159, bears registration 9M-MAB.
