Bangkok--12 Feb--TQPR

The new Airbus A350-1000 has arrived in Bangkok for the first time for a demonstration flight and a ground display. Following its arrival at Suvarnabhumi International Airport, the aircraft took off for a special 1-hour flight this afternoon with representatives from the government, airlines, aviation authorities and members of the press.

This aircraft visit in Bangkok is part of a three-week Demonstration Tour that is bringing the A350-1000 test aircraft across the Asia-Pacific region.

The A350-1000 is Airbus latest and largest widebody in the twin-aisle category. With a 7-meter longer fuselage, the A350-1000 space for premium cabin products is 40% larger than its smaller sibling the A350-900. The A350-1000 accommodates 366 passengers in a typical three-class configuration, featuring Airbus' 18-inch-wide Comfort Economy class seats. It is a truly long-range aircraft with a range of 8,000nm (14,800 km) at entry into service, enabling non-stop service from Bangkok to Europe or North America.

With its Airspace cabin the A350-1000 offers the latest in cabin design and technology for the best passenger experience. Featuring a spacious and remarkably quiet cabin the A350-1000 brings new level of comfort and ambiance with the most modern entertainment service available in the air.

The A350-1000 is showing high level of commonality with the entire Airbus product line and, in particular, with the A350-900 with 95% common systems part numbers and same Type Rating. The A350-1000 features a modified wing trailing-edge, new six-wheel main landing gears and more powerful Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-97 engines. As the A350-900, the A350-1000 brings together the very latest in aerodynamics, design and advanced technologies for a 25 per cent step change in operating cost compared to previous generation competitor aircraft.

The A350-1000 being displayed, MSN065, is one of the three Airbus A350-1000 test aircraft and is equipped with a fully functional cabin (40 business class, 36 economy plus class and 219 comfort economy class seats).

The A350 XWB Family has been especially successful in the Asia-Pacific region, where 14 major airlines have ordered a total of 287 aircraft, representing one third of the 854 orders recorded so far worldwide. Carriers from the region already flying the A350-900 for their long haul operations include: Asiana Airlines, Cathay Pacific Airways, China Airlines, Hong Kong Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Thai Airways International and Vietnam Airlines.
