FARNBOROUGH, England, July 17 (Reuters) - Abu Dhabi's Etihad has firmed up an order for seven Airbus A350 freighters, confirming an informal letter of intent signed early this year, industry sources said on Sunday.

The order, which was included in Airbus' most recent monthly bulletin as an undisclosed customer, comes ahead of this week's Farnborough Airshow but the announcement timing remains unclear.

Airbus declined comment and Etihad did not immediately reply to a request for comment. (Reporting by Tim Hepher; Editing by Daniel Wallis)
