The aircraft will then proceed with thorough ground checks, cabin installation and prepare for its first test flight, before making its journey home to Malaysia. 

 Stay tuned as we provide more updates on our first A330neo scheduled for delivery in Q3 of this year!, the national carrier said in a statement issued via its media social account. 

As part of its ongoing fleet modernisation plan, Malaysia Aviation Group (MAG) is set to induct 12 new aircraft in 2024, including its first Airbus 330-900 (A330neo) which is scheduled to arrive in Q3 2024.

In August 2022, MAG signed Memorandum of Understandings (MOU) with Airbus, Rolls-Royce and Avolon for the acquisition of 20 A330neo aircraft which are scheduled to be delivered through to 2028.

10 of the aircraft are directly purchased from Airbus with a back-to-back sale and leaseback arrangement with Avolon, while the remaining 10 are leased directly from Avolon.  — DSA
