Measuring nearly 74 metres from nose-to-tail, the A350-1000 is the longest-fuselage version of Airbus’ all-new family of twin-aisle, wide-body jetliners. In a typical three-class configuration, featuring the company’s 18-inch-wide economy class seats for modern comfort, the A350-1000 seats between 350 and 410 passengers – who can expect a spacious and quiet cabin, wider seats and elegant ambient lighting that contributes to a beautiful interior while also minimising the effects of jetlag. The aircraft entered into service in February 2018. High performance Designed with airlines' priorities in mind, the A350 XWB meets the multiple challenges of high fuel prices, rising expectations from passengers and increasing environmental concerns. As with the other A350 XWB Family members, Airbus’ A350-1000 brings together the very latest in aerodynamics, design and advanced technologies for a 25% step change in fuel efficiency compared to its current long-range competitor. Seven metres longer than the A350-900; the A350-1000 features modified wing trailing-edges, larger six-wheel main landing gears, an advanced airframe with extensive use of composite materials, and the world’s most efficient large aero-engine. Airspace The A350 XWB Family cabin design proved to be so successful that it redefined Airbus’ approach to cabin interiors – leading to the creation of Airspace, a next-generation cabin concept inspired by four key attributes: comfort, service, ambience and design. The A350-1000 offers passengers the quietest twin-aisle cabin in the skies, wider seats and elegant LED ambient lighting that not only contributes to a beautiful interior, but minimises the effects of jetlag, as well. The A350-1000 also can offer passengers the most modern in-flight experience available. With movies on-demand included within a range of features, passengers can stay entertained throughout their flight, while the availability of Wi-Fi connectivity can ensure that they can stay in touch with the world below; whether it’s posting to social networks, staying on top of important business emails or something else, there’s no need to be out of touch when you’re in the air. Innovation The A350 XWB is truly innovative, with new technology throughout the entirety of the aircraft. From the design of the wings that morph and change shape in flight to obtain optimal efficiency to the flight controls and system that reduce the pilot’s workload, this aircraft utilises modern technology to create a better way of flying. Nowhere is this innovation more apparent than in the A350 XWB’s fuselage, built with carbon-fibre reinforced plastic. The combination of these technological advances ensures that the A350-1000 burns 25% less fuel than its nearest competitor, saving money and reducing harmful effects to the environment. Increased efficiency Powering the A350-1000 are Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-97 engines that allow the largest member of the A350 XWB Family to attain high levels of efficiency. Each engine provides 97,000 lbs. of thrust on takeoff – the most powerful engine ever developed for an Airbus aircraft – providing additional payload capability and range. With these specially-tailored Trent XWB powerplants, the A350-1000 is capable of long-haul routes to emerging markets such as Shanghai-Boston or Paris-Santiago, as well as more traditional flight segments as Manchester-Los Angeles or Dubai-Melbourne.
