Designed-in efficiency

The environmental performance of Airbus’ A350-800 is supported by next-generation Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines and state-of-the-art aerodynamics, both of which help reduce its emissions below current and anticipated future regulatory levels.  

In addition, carbon dioxide emissions per passenger will be approximately 25 per cent lower than current-generation aircraft in this category, while exterior noise levels will be as much as 21 EPNdB (Effective Perceived Noise Decibel) below ICAO Chapter 4 requirements.

The A350-800 is the shortest-fuselage version in Airbus’ A350 XWB all-new family of mid-sized widebody airliners. It accommodates 280 passengers in a typical three-class cabin, with a flight range of 8,200 nautical miles. 

This A350 XWB variant retains maximum commonality with the family’s other versions, using the same cross-section, cockpit and pilot type rating – along with common engines, systems, operating and maintenance procedures. 

It also offers the perfect space for passenger well-being, and provides airlines with increased efficiency, flexibility and opportunities to enhance their cabin. Committed to passenger experience and delivering superior performance for airlines, the Airspace by Airbus philosophy offers a next-generation flying experience with four key attributes: comfort, service, ambience and design.
