A350 met Qatar livery

Het vierde A350 XWB testvliegtuig is klaar. Dit keer met een speciale Qatar Airways livery. Qatar is de launch customer. De eerste A350 zal later dit jaar worden afgeleverd.

Qatar Airways CEO, Akbar Al Baker, visited Airbus’ facilities in Toulouse to get first-hand information on the A350 programme’s progress. The Doha based airline will be the first A350 XWB operator and is also its biggest customer with 80 aircraft on order. Airbus and Qatar Airways are working closely together to ensure a successful entry-into-service of this all-new aircraft from day one.

During his site-tour, Mr Al Baker unveiled Airbus’ newest flight test aircraft MSN4, branded with a special “launch customer” livery. The aircraft will soon join the A350 flight test fleet for external noise and lightning tests, avionics development & certification and training for first customer pilots & maintenance teams.

“I am pleased with what I have seen during my visit. It gives me every confidence that the programme is well on track for our first delivery in 2014. At Qatar Airways, we are eager to open a new chapter of efficient and comfortable air travel and the A350 XWB will do this for us. The aircraft will give us that extra edge in economics and comfort to further boost our route expansion.” commented Akbar Al Baker.
