The A350, launched in 2014, is known as the reference for long-haul flights. Our A350 component support will give you access to our pool locations worldwide for immediate part availability.
The A350 XWB is a series of twin-engine produced by Airbus. Unveiled in July 2006, it was industrially launched in December 2006. The first A350 airframe (-900) was rolled out on February 2013 and performed its on June 2013.
The larger A350-1000 was rolled out in 2016 and performed its first flight on November 2016. In addition, Airbus has also developed an extended-range version of the -900 that is marketed as the A350-900 Ultra Long Range (ULR), an airplane made its first flight on April 23, 2018.
Beyond its dimensions and passenger seating capacities, the A350 cabin also includes the Airspace by Airbus cabin, a “cabin concept” that is described by Airbus as focusing on four attributes: ambience, comfort, design and service.
The A350 offer great passenger capacity and range, as well as various new technologies. The A350 fuselage cross-section is promoted as allowing operators to install “the widest seats of any jetliner in its category,” The combination of the airframe’s cabin noise level, light-emitting diode (LED) lighting and seat width is also touted as “minimizing the effects of jetlag.”
Passenger fatigue is further decreased by the ability of the airframe to have a cabin altitude of as low as 6,000 ft. at the -900’s 43,100-ft. maximum operating altitude—an altitude that is touted as being “25% less than in aluminum-fuselage aircraft”—as well as by the “draft-free air conditioning system,” the combination of which “leads to a less dry cabin environment.”
