First A350 for Air France Fleet Exits Airbus Paint Shop

The Airbus A350-900 will be joining the Air France fleet very soon! This first aircraft, which will enter into service in October, has just left the Airbus paint shop in Toulouse. The aircraft’s engine assembly and cabin installation are the next steps before flying the company’s customers around the world.

The addition to the fleet of the Airbus A350-900 is part of the Air France long-haul fleet’s renewal and growth strategy. In addition to meeting ambitious environmental objectives and being a guarantee of reliability, the modern design of the aircraft and its components offers optimum service to customers, whose satisfaction is at the heart of the company’s ambition.

21 aircraft have been ordered from Airbus and will be rapidly rolled out from next October.
