  • Airbus A350 maiden flight (2013): Takeoff

I recently did an article on the Airbus A380 but I have now heard that Airbus has created another aircraft!

The Airbus A350 XWB (standing for Xtra-Wide Bodied) was produced in 2010 and its first flight was on 14th June 2013, however, I decided to write this article as it seems quite new, seeing as only eight of them have been built so far (as of March 2015).

At the moment, the main user of this aircraft is Qatar Airways but, according to the Airbus website, 780 of these mighty Extra-Wide Bodied aircrafts have been ordered by various airlines!

This aircraft is so economical that it produces -25% CO2 emissions.

The Rolls Royce Trent XWB engines (that is actually the name of the engines, which is also partly the reason why the plane is called the Airbus XWB) create hardly any noise and it is way below the maximum level, meaning that passengers can travel in better comfort.

The maximum amount of people who can get on this plane is 475 but, as there are three different models of this plane, I only gave you the largest model.

Check out the Airbus website for more information!
