The first A319neo equipped with CFM International LEAP-1A engines completed its maiden flight on 31 March 2017, with the aircraft taking off from Hamburg-Finkenwerder Airport in Germany and landing five hours later at Airbus’ Toulouse, France headquarters location.</div>
Airbus delivered its 100th Sharklet-equipped A320 Family aircraft – which also is the initial A319 equipped with these fuel-saving wingtip devices – to American Airlines during a special ceremony held 23 July 2013 in Hamburg, Germany.
The first phase of A350 XWB route-proving flights took Airbus’ newest jetliner from Toulouse, France over the North Pole to Iqaluit Airport in the Canadian territory of Nunavut. On its return flight, the A350-900 made a stopover in Frankfurt, Germany for visits by personnel from Lufthansa – one of the 38 customers placing firm orders for the A350 Family to date. The world route proving flights are demonstrating the A350-900 version’s readiness for airline operations, and will include operations to14 major airports worldwide.
Airbus’ next-generation A350 XWB completed its four-trip route-proving campaign – which is designed to demonstrate the aircraft’s readiness for airline operations and is part of the final stage toward certification. On its fourth trip, this highly-efficient jetliner made stops in Doha, Qatar, Perth, Australia, Moscow, Russia and Helsinki, Finland to wrap up a campaign that amassed some 81,700 naut. mi. in approximately 180 flight hours. The A350 XWB performed as expected and on schedule at each destination, and is expected to achieve Type Certification in the third quarter of 2014.
