File Description: The A350 XWB (Xtra Wide-Body) is Airbus response to market demand for a medium capacity long range wide-body family. Designed with airlines priorities in mind, the A350 XWB confronts the challenges of high fuel prices, rising passenger expectations and increasing environmental concerns.
Available from 2013, it has an entirely new, uncompromised, 21st Century design with a wider and taller fuselage for extra space and passenger comfort. A complete family of airliners sized to generate cost reductions and provide unprecedented operating flexibility for airlines; three basic passenger versions are being offered. With a range of up to 8,300nm/15,380km they include the A350-800 for 270 passengers in a spacious three-class configuration; the A350-900 for 314 passengers and the A350 - 1000 seating 350 passengers. An ultra long - range version, the A350 - 900R, will fly even further while a freighter version, the A350 - 900F, will complement the passenger models.
