A350 XWB Family

Shaping the future of air travel

A350 XWB Family aircraft



A natural revolution in design

The most perfect designs often are found in nature. That’s why Airbus looks to learn from the natural world when designing and improving upon its aircraft. As the newest member of the company’s widebody family, the A350 XWB is an example of how this inspirational blend of science and nature represents another significant evolution in the ongoing mission to conceive and manufacture the perfect aircraft.

The A350 XWB has learned from nature to help ensure a healthy future for the planet, whether it’s the revolutionary adaptive wing design – inspired by birds – which morphs while airborne to achieve maximum aerodynamic efficiency by optimising wing loading, reducing drag and lowering fuel burn; or the savings generated by innovative technological advances.

Designed with passengers and airlines at heart, the A350 XWB benefits from being built with over 70% advanced materials; combining carbon composites (53%), titanium and modern aluminium alloys, to create a lighter and more cost-efficient aircraft while also reducing maintenance requirements. The latest generation Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines are quieter and more efficient.

The combination of these advantages result in 25% lower operating costs, fuel burn and CO2 emissions when compared with previous-generation aircraft – showing Airbus’ commitment to protecting the environment while remaining at the cutting edge of air travel. 

Airspace: a new standard of comfort

It’s not only the technology that has been transformed. When Airbus designed the A350 XWB, a cabin was created that is so comfortable it revolutionised the approach to all of the company’s aircraft interiors. As the founding member of the Airspace by Airbus cabin family, passengers on the A350 XWB can experience a feeling of on-board comfort like never before.

The aircraft’s innovative design delivers a feeling of spaciousness wherever you look, with wider seats, high ceilings and alluring ambient lighting. Airbus has produced the perfect environment in which to enjoy flying to any long-haul destination. The A350 XWB’s cabin also is the quietest on a twin-aisle aircraft, and its advanced technology delivers the highest possible air quality with optimised cabin altitude (6000 ft), temperature and humidity, with the air being renewed every two-to-three minutes. Passengers can relax knowing that Airbus has thought of everything to ensure that they can arrive feeling fresh.

Long journeys pass quickly with the latest-generation in-flight experience. Integrated connectivity lets passengers stay in touch with the rest of the world, while smart galleys and comfortable crew rest areas provide cabin crew with a pleasant working environment that makes it even easier to look after passengers.

The smart choice for any airline

It’s no surprise that this brilliantly-designed aircraft is one of the most versatile in the sky. The A350 XWB actually offers true long-range capability of up to 8,100 nautical miles, but can also be easily configured to operate both regional and ultra-long haul routes (up to 9,700 nm), demonstrating its full operational flexibility.

The A350 XWB Family lower deck cargo compartments are designed to transport a large variety of belly cargo (baggage, freight, sport gear, buggies, kennels, etc.) boosting airline revenues.
