A350-900

The A350-900 is the cornerstone member of Airbus’ all-new A350 XWB Family, which is shaping the future of medium, long and ultra-long haul travel. This jetliner accommodates 325 passengers in a standard three-class configuration and its state-of-the-art comfort and amenities ensure that everyone on-board enjoys a pleasant flight. As with all A350 XWB models, its fuselage is built with carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) – which supports lower fuel burn, easier maintenance and increased resistance to corrosion.

The A350-900 is the cornerstone member of Airbus’ all-new A350 XWB Family, which is destined to shape the future of medium, long and ultra-long haul travel. This jetliner accommodates 325 passengers in a standard three-class configuration and its state-of-the-art comfort and amenities ensure that everyone on-board enjoys a pleasant flight.

Redefined comfort

The A350-900 received Type Certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in September 2014.

Like all members of the A350 XWB Family, the A350-900 benefits from having the most modern cabin – delivering new standards of comfort to passengers throughout the flight. The advances made in the A350 XWB’s cabin have led to development of the Airspace by Airbus concept, which delivers the perfect space for passenger well-being – exemplified by the A350 XWB – to the rest of Airbus’ aircraft families. 

Passengers on the A350-900 can look forward to a spacious, elegantly-lit cabin as they settle into Airbus’ wider seats for an enjoyable flight.

The quietness of the cabin contributes to a relaxing environment, while the latest in-flight entertainment allows passengers to access movies on demand or stay-up-to-date with the world below thanks to Wi-Fi and mobile phone connectivity – whether it’s for social media, replying to important business emails or something else.

Impactful Innovation

Incorporating advances in flight controls, systems and wing design, the A350-900 is a truly state-of-the-art aircraft. These developments have a genuine impact in terms of safety, maintenance and efficiency, meaning that the aircraft reduces its fuel burn significantly – generating savings and reducing its environmental impact. 

As with all A350 XWB models, the fuselage is built with carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) – which supports lower fuel burn, easier maintenance and increased resistance to corrosion. The jetliner’s wings also are more efficient and quieter due to their advanced design, which allows them to adapt while airborne – tailoring it for maximum aerodynamic efficiency in the various phases of flight.

The ‘Xtra’ distance

As part of its philosophy of continuous innovation, Airbus has launched the Ultra-Long Range version of the A350-900. Designated as the A350-900ULR, the jetliner offers increased fuel-carrying capacity of up to 165,000 litres and a higher 280-tonne maximum takeoff weight, enabling service on non-stop flights of up to 20 hours.  

Benefitting from the A350 XWB’s unique flexibility, the extended range capability does not involve installation of additional fuel tanks (just an adaptation of the fuel system within the existing fuel tank), and the A350-900ULR can be reconfigured to the standard long-haul specifications if required by the operator.
