An airline official, speaking to The Nation newspaper, said S2-ADF (cn 700) and S2-ADK (cn 594) will be replaced by two dry leased B737-800 on sixty-month contracts.

The carrier had previously planned to replace the A310s with either two B777-200s/ERs and one B777-300(ER) or one B737-800 and one B777-300(ER). However, plans have changed after the carrier’s board voted to focus more on the regional Asian market as opposed to the long haul market.
