Etihad Airways will launch a third daily flight between Abu Dhabi and Riyadh beginning in February, to meet increased demand.  The route is already serviced by one Boeing 777 and a 787.

Boeing has closed a deal for the sale of four 787 Dreamliners to Uzbekistan Airways.

Rolls-Royce is poised to begin two new flight test programs in the coming weeks: one for the Trent 1000-TEN which will equip the Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner model; and another for the Trent 7000 which will equip the Airbus A330 NEO.  The Trent is the exclusive engine choice for the A330 NEO, and is the lead-in engine model for the stretched Boeing 787-10.

Sichuan Airlines has signed an agreement for the lease of a single Airbus A350-900, with Air Lease Corporation.

China Airlines is expected to be the first airline to operate the Airbus A350 flying out of Vienna.
