China Airlines to receive first Airbus A350 in 2016

Taiwan's largest air carrier, China Airlines (CAL), announced Monday that it will receive its first A350-900 XWB -- Airbus' newest widebody jetliner -- in 2016.

CAL, which has ordered 14 A350s, is the first Taiwanese air carrier to introduce the new aircraft.

Assembly work on the first of the aircrafts ordered will begin in January 2016, with its delivery date scheduled for July, CAL said. (By Bien Chen-feng and Y.F. Low)
