Cathay Pacific's First Airbus A350 Performs Maiden Flight



The first A350-900 for Cathay Pacific Airways has completed its maiden flight in Toulouse, France. It will now enter the final phase of production including cabin completion, further ground checks and test flights before delivery.


The aircraft will be the first of 48 A350 XWBs ordered by Cathay Pacific. Cathay Pacific’s A350 XWB fleet will include 22 A350-900s and 26 of the larger A350-1000s.


Bringing new levels of efficiency and comfort in the long range market, the A350 XWB family will be especially well suited to the needs of Asia-Pacific airlines.


Firm orders from carriers in the region for the new aircraft already total 241, representing over a third of total sales for the A350 XWB to date.


The A350 XWB is the world’s latest generation airliner and the newest member of Airbus’ modern, comfortable & efficient widebody product family. It features the latest aerodynamic design, carbon fiber fuselage and wings, plus new fuel-efficient Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines.


Together, these latest technologies translate into unrivalled levels of operational efficiency, with a 25% reduction in fuel burn and emissions, and significantly lower maintenance costs.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
