Qatar Airways is introducing Airbus’ latest widebody aircraft in 2014


This year opens a new chapter for Qatar Airways’ Airbus widebody fleet, starting with today’s handover of the airline’s initial A380.

The Doha-based carrier’s landmark A380 aircraft will soon be followed by another important delivery: Airbus’ A350 XWB jetliner, which Qatar Airways – the global launch customer – is scheduled to receive by the fourth quarter of 2014.
The airliners’ complementary capacities enable airlines to efficiently meet long-haul passenger demand, by utilising the efficient 525-seat A380 – which has the lowest cost per seat of any aircraft operating today – as a flagship on high-demand routes.
And this can be effectively paired with the mid-sized A350 XWB Family, which offers 25 per cent better fuel efficiency on medium- to long-haul operations compared to its current competitor, while accommodating between 276 and 369 passengers in two-class layouts across its -800, -900 and -1000 versions.
Qatar Airways will use the newest generation of Airbus widebody aircraft – the A380 and A350 XWB – to serve a wide range of market requirements.
In addition to its 10 A380 aircraft on order, Qatar Airways has ordered 80 A350s, along with the A330/340 and A320 aircraft that it currently operates.
