Hamburg, 28 May 2024 – Airbus has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Taiwan’s China Airlines to retrofit the airline’s A350 cabins with a new layout and state-of-the-art amenities.

Under this agreement, Airbus Services will oversee the installation of China Airlines’ latest Premium Business Class, Premium Economy Class and Economy Class seats on its fleet of 15 A350-900s.
