Air Mauritius (MK, Mauritius) has firmed up its order with Airbus (AIB, Toulouse Blagnac) for four A350-900s. The order was announced at this year's Farnborough International Airshow 2014 as a Memorandum of Understanding and will see the first pair of A350s being delivered in 2019 followed by the remaining two in 2020.

Air Mauritius has also reserved its right to exercise an option to place additional orders of up to three A350s between 2023 and 2025 on the same terms and conditions that led to the selection of the first four aircraft with Airbus.

It is recalled that the Mauritian national carrier will lease two A350s from AerCap with delivery scheduled for 2017.

Airbus has meanwhile confirmed its first corporate customer for the A350 with delivery scheduled for 2020. The manufacturer did not disclose the buyer's identity.
