Airbus says Taiwan's TransAsia places order for eight jets
Taiwan's TransAsia Airways has placed a firm order for two wide-body A330-300 aircraft and six single-aisle A321 jets with a catalogue price of nearly one billion euros, Airbus said Tuesday.
"The A330s will be the first wide body jets to join the company's fleet" said the European aircraft manufacturer, adding "the aircraft will be principally used on the direct routes linking Taiwan and continental China, as well as new regional lines."
TransAsia Airways has been using Airbus aircraft since 1995. It currently has five mid-size A321 aircraft and two A320s which it uses on its domestic and regional routes, as well as 13 destinations to continental China.
