TOULOUSE, FRANCE — Air India will take delivery of six Airbus A350-900s that were originally intended for Aeroflot. The Indian carrier will receive those planes towards the end of this year as part of a larger agreement for a total of 40 A350s.

Aeroflot had ordered 16 A350-900s from Airbus, with only seven delivered before the sanctions were imposed against the Russian Federation over the Ukraine conflict.

Air India is set to receive the remaining 34 A350s in the form of -1000s, which will arrive a couple of years later.

Air India has also secured an order for 210 single-aisle Airbus jets, which will comprise a combination of 140 A320neos and 70 A321neos. However, it is anticipated that the delivery of these aircraft will take place towards the end of the decade.
