Airbus and Qatar Airways are set to open a new chapter in commercial aviation together with the delivery of the world’s first customer A350-900 aircraft.
Qatar Airways – the global launch customer for this highly efficient next-generation widebody jetliner type – has 80 total A350 XWB Family aircraft on order, including 43 A350-900s and 37 of the longer-fuselage A350-1000 versions. The carrier plans to commence commercial service with the A350 XWB between its Hamad International Airport hub in Doha, Qatar and Frankfurt, Germany in January. Airbus’ all-new A350 XWB incorporates the latest in aerodynamic design and advanced materials – including an airframe comprised of 53 percent composites – along with new fuel-efficient Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines to deliver a significant reduction in fuel burn and emissions, as well as lower maintenance costs.
