US Airways could receive the first of five A330s scheduled for delivery this year as soon as tomorrow.

A carrier spokesman confirms to ATI that the airline has secured financing for the aircraft, "but we won't be getting into the terms and details of the arrangement".

Delivery of the first aircraft was scheduled for May. Previously carrier CFO Derek Kerr has said in "cases like these Airbus has been enormously creative".

Kerr in March said the aircraft were "ready to come" and that US Airways was confident of the aircraft being delivered with financing in place.

Shortly after Kerr made those comments he was joined by US Airways CEO Doug Parker and President Scott Kirby on a trip to Airbus headquarters in Toulouse.

The A330-200s are necessary for the launch of new US Airways service from its Philadelphia hub to Tel Aviv in July. Previously, US Airways has said two of the five A330s scheduled for delivery in 2009 will be dedicated to that route.
