The test A350-1000 aircraft undertaking the 30,000 nautical mile tour, is one of three owned by Airbus, and is equipped with fully functional Business Class and Economy Class cabins. The tour follows a highly successful test flight campaign which demonstrated the aircraft’s exceptional design and performance capabilities.

The mid-sized long-haul aircraft is assembled by Airbus at its facility in Toulouse, France. The A350-1000 is 23 feet longer than its sister aircraft, the Airbus A350-900, for which Qatar Airways was also the global launch customer.

It also provides enhanced levels of passenger comfort, thanks to its advanced light-weight carbon composite design and high-quality interior finish. Read full Story>>
