Description: The Airbus A350 due to enter service in first half of 2010 will complement the Airbus A330/A340 family of wide-body commercial aircraft. The new airliner is close to the twin-engine A330 commercial aircraft and will be available in two different versions: A350-800 and A350-900. The seating-capacity of A350 will be the same of A330 but offering extended range suitable for international routes. Furthermore, Airbus will complete its product line range with an aircraft that matches Boeing 7E7 capabilities.

BAE Systems and EADS gave the go ahead for Airbus to offer the A350 airplane to airlines around the world on December 10, 2004. Despite at that time it was still in the early concept phase, it received positive response from many Airbus customers. The new aircraft will offer maximum of operational commonality with existing A330/A340 aircraft. According to EADS and BAE Systems joint statement, future demand for the A350 type could be 3,100 aircraft over the next 20 years. Airbus claims that A350 can get at least 50 per cent.

The Airbus A350 will incorporate some of the cutting-edge technologies, materials and manufacturing processes; such as Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) and aluminum-lithium alloys; which are being developed for the A380 SuperJumbo allowing higher efficiency in the production and operation. The aircraft will use a new nacelle and a pylon design initially developed for the A380. Seating-capacity will vary from 245 to 285 passengers. Through this launch Airbus expects to speed up sales of commercial aircraft and overall company profit due to the increased revenues coming from additional sales.

On 17 July 2006, Christian Streiff Airbus President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) launched a new family of aircraft based on the A350 design. The new family known as A350 XWB, Extra Wide Body, was bearing that name for Extra Comfort, Extra Efficiency and going the Extra mile for customers. In addition to A350-800 and -900 models, Airbus committed three new models: two airliners and a dedicated freighter. The seating capacity for both -800 and -900 models boosted to 270 and 314 passengers respectively. The A350-900 entry into service date was delayed from 2010 to 2012. The A350-1000 extra wide body airliner will have a seating capacity of 350. With a range of 8,500 nautical miles and a cruise speed of Mach 0.85 these three models will form the basis of A350 XWB aircraft family.

Beyond 2012, Airbus expects to deliver the A350-900R ultra long-range aircraft based on the -900 model. The A350 XWB product line will be complete by the A350-900F freighter variant. XWB airplanes will offer wider cross section, allowing for wider seats, wider aisles and more head and shoulder clearance. Twenty percent cabin humidity and wider panoramic windows will further enhance the passenger experience. Airbus estimates that next-generation engines will make the A350 up to 30 percent fuel efficient over current existing aircraft and approx. 6 percent over the 787 Dreamliner. Furthermore, these models will feature lower noise and lower emissions compliant with the most stringent environmental requirements.

The Airbus A350-900ULR, formerly the A350-900R, is an ultra long range version of the A350 intended for routes of up to 19,100 kilometers. Optimized for non-stop flights to the US, the A350-900ULR (Ultra-Long Range), will include a modified fuel system to increase the fuel carrying capacity, an increase in Maximum Take-Off Weight (MTOW), plus aerodynamic improvements, enabling service to the US West Coast, as well as to New York.
