The optimised baseline
The A350-900 is the cornerstone member of Airbus’ all-new A350 XWB which is well-suited to meet airlines’ market requirements in medium-, long-, and ultra-long-haul operations.
As the first A350 XWB version to enter airline service, the A350-900 has the same optimised cabin cross-section as the other A350 XWB versions – which ensures maximum comfort for both passengers and crew while guaranteeing operators optimum revenue potential and operating efficiency.
This jetliner accommodates 325 passengers in a three-class configuration, while offering unbeatable economics in high-density seating and true long-haul capability with a range of up to 7,600 nautical miles in its standard configuration.
The 221-inch interior cross-section provides room for premium class configurations at up to six- or seven-abreast seating, along with featuring comfort economy class layouts at nine abreast, with versatility for eight and ten-abreast arrangements.
Going the “XTRA” distance
As part of its philosophy for continuous innovation, Airbus has launched the Ultra-Long Range version of the A350-900. Designated as the A350-900ULR, the jetliner offers increased fuel-carrying capacity of up to 165,000 litres and a higher 280-tonne maximum takeoff weight to enable service on non-stop flights of up to 19 hours.
Benefitting from the A350 XWB’s unique flexibility, the extended range capability does not involve installation of additional fuel tanks (just an adaptation of the fuel system within the existing fuel tank), and the A350-900ULR can be reconfigured to the standard long-haul specifications if required by the operator.
