Maximizing earning potential

Airbus’ highly-efficient A350 XWB is designed to enhance revenue potential for operators in all market segments. In addition to a high-capacity cabin that maximizes passenger revenue, the A350 XWB’s lower deck provides ample space for baggage and money-generating cargo.

To ensure smooth operations and efficient interlining worldwide, the A350 XWB cargo holds accommodate industry-standard 96-inch pallets and LD3 containers.  To facilitate loading/unloading, the holds are equipped with large outward opening doors.

Payload capability

The A350 XWB Family’s longest-fuselage member – the A350-1000 – can transport 21 tonnes of volumetric cargo and up to 31.3 tonnes of structural cargo, along with its passenger load in a typical two-class configuration.  The mid-sized A350-900’s cargo capability is 16.6 tonnes volumetric and 24.5 tonnes structural (in addition to the passenger load); and the shorter-fuselage A350-800 version has a cargo capacity of 13 volumetric tonnes and 19 structural tonnes while also carrying main deck passengers in the two-class configuration.

Airbus has envisaged an A350 XWB Freighter version from the beginning of this all-new jetliner programme, which would bring a new generation of technology and economics to the long haul cargo market.
