Product features

The world's most modern and efficient aircraft family

  • Combining the very latest aerodynamics, new generation engines and use of lightweight materials, the A350 XWB brings a 25% advantage in fuel burn, operating costs and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions compared to previous generation competitor aircraft.
  • State-of-the-artaerodynamics, inspired by nature, including unique morphing technology that continuously optimises the wing profile to reduce drag and lower fuel burn.
  • Powered by new Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines, the world's most efficient large aero engine flying today:
    • A350-900:84,000 lbs take-off thrust
    • A350-1000:97,000 lbs take-off thrust
  • Over 70% of the airframe is made from advanced materials, including:
    • 53% composites
    • titanium (substitute for steel)
    • modern aluminium alloys

Community benefits

An eco-efficient, sustainable design for a quieter, cleaner aircraft reducing the environmental impact from gate to gate:

  • Quietest in its class with 40% noise footprint reduction vs previous generation aircraft: exterior noise level of the A350-900 is certified at 21 EPNdB (Effective Perceived Noise Decibel) below ICAO Chapter 4 requirements.
  • 25% less CO2 emissions per seat. Demonstrating Airbus' commitment to minimise its environmental impact while remaining at the cutting edge of air travel.
  • 28% NOx (Nitrogen (di)Oxide) emissions below CAEP/6.

Cabin features

  • The A350 XWB features a 221"-wide cabin (6" wider than 787) offering passengers absolute comfort in all classes, and flexibility for airlines to accommodate all types of configurations.
  • The A350-900 offers 300-350 seats in typical 3-class configuration
  • The A350-1000 offers 350-410 seats in typical 3-class configuration, with the same comfort and 40% more premium area.

Exclusive passenger experience

  • The quietest twin-aisle cabin:
      • Five decibels quieter than competing aircraft, and up to nine decibels quieter towards the front of the cabin. This means four times less noise.
      • Lower cabin altitude thanks to composite fuselage: 6,000 feet vs 8,000 feet in an aluminium fuselage aircraft.
    • Largest overhead luggage bins on the market.
  • Highest ceiling (95 inches) in the industry and vertical sidewalls, increasing the feeling of space for passengers.
  • Latest air conditioning and cabin temperature management systems:
  • Up to 8 temperature control zones for passengers in all classes, additional 4 zones for crew members.
  • More fresh air than 787 with entire air cabin renewed every 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Full LED ambient lighting: 16.7 million different colours for a large variety of customisable, dynamic lighting scenarios to simulate different times of day (e.g. mimicking natural sunrise and sunset) and reduce fatigue & jetlag after a long-haul flight.

In-Flight-Entertainment& Connectivity:

  • Latest (fourth) generation in-flight entertainment system for all passengers: high definition screens and video on demand.
  • Full connectivity (Internet, Email, GSM, WiFi) via personal devices for all passengers.
