Aeroflot (SU, Moscow Sheremetyevo) is in talks with Airbus (AIB, Toulouse Blagnac) over a possible increase in its current order for fourteen A350-900s, the first of which is now due in February 2020.

Sources familiar with the talks told Reuters the new order, if placed, could potentially see the Russian carrier's A350 order backlog grow to up to 25 aircraft.

Neither Aeroflot nor Airbus chose to comment on the report.

Meanwhile, schedule data indicates Aeroflot will expand its Dubai services with the opening of a new daily Moscow Sheremetyevo-Dubai World Central service during the Winter 2018/19 season. The daily return flight will operate onboard B737-800 equipment and will compliment Aeroflot's existing Sheremetyevo-Dubai Int'l daily service.
