About A350F aircraft

To ensure sustainability of future freight operations and to keep the world a beautiful place, Airbus is introducing a super efficient and reliable freighter aircraft - the A350F, to the market. The A350F will bring a game-changing 20% to 40% reduction in fuel burn and CO2 emissions compared to freighters currently flying. Its efficiency is coming from the weight savings of its new structure composed of 70% advanced material like carbon fibre and titanium, coupled with the latest generation efficient engines and state of the art systems.

The A350F will make operators' life easier thanks to its 99.5% operational reliability and its commonality with the almost 500 x A350 passenger aircraft already flying around the world. It will also require less maintenance and will bring from 20% to 40% economies in operations. The A350F will be capable of carrying 109 tonnes all the way on the most demanding freighter routes like from Asia to the US and to Europe. The new generation freighter will have 8 different temperature zones and thanks to this will have the flexibility to transport large modern aircraft engines, live animals as big as horses, large cars, large industrial equipment, and temperature control goods like fish, vegetables and flowers regularly and at once. The A350F brings continuity to businesses and your everyday life more sustainably than any other air freighter in the skies today.
