TransAsia Airways orders two A330s and six A321s
TransAsia Airways of Taiwan has placed a firm order with Airbus for two widebody A330-300s and six single aisle A321s.
The aircraft will be used primarily on direct services between Taiwan and mainland China, as well as on new regional routes. The A330s will become the first widebody aircraft to join the airline's fleet. Engine selections for both the A330s and the A321s will be made in the near future.
"This new aircraft order reflects the strong demand on our services to mainland China and the region," said Vincent Lin, Chairman, of TransAsia Airways. TransAsia Airways is part of the Goldsun Group and has been flying Airbus aircraft since 1995. Today the carrier operates five A321s and two A320s on domestic and regional services, including flights to 13 destinations in mainland China.
