33 Airbus A350 aircraft have been ordered by Korean Air this morning.

Based on the pictures released by Airbus, the order does look to be for the wider variant, being the -1000.

On social media, the European planemaker had this to say on the order:

“대한항공에 감사드립니다! Thank you”

@KoreanAir_KE for choosing the #A350#LongRangeLeader!”

“With the news that it will order 33 A350s, the airline has become the latest customer for the aircraft that is changing the shape of long-haul air travel.”

This means that with the other announcement from this morning, Airbus has sold 54 A350 aircraft today.

Earlier this morning, Japan Airlines placed an order with Airbus for 21 A350-900s and 11 A321neo aircraft.

On X, the European planemaker said the following on the order:

“Great news from Tokyo! @JAL_Official_jp has announced that it will grow its Airbus fleet with new orders for 21 #A350-900s and its first ever order for Airbus single aisle aircraft, with a commitment for 11 #A321neo.”

“Thank you to JAL for its continued confidence in Airbus and our products.”

This represents strong news for both aircraft variants sold by the European planemaker.

In conclusion, it has so far been a big day for the A350 program, with Korean Air and Japan Airlines placing orders.

Looking ahead, all eyes will be on how many more orders the aircraft program will get over the course of 2024.

Sales momentum is now beginning to pick up for the European planemaker, following a quiet February.

But for now, let’s see how the rest of the year goes for the manufacturer.
