Description: The Airbus Beluga XL is an oversize air transporter derived from the A330 widebody airliner and intended to carry two A350XWB wings at a time. The new aircraft is one meter wider and six meters longer than the current Beluga air transporter. The Beluga XL will provide Airbus with an additional 30 percent air transport capacity through five aircraft. The Beluga XL program was launched in November 2014 and is expected to enter into service in 2019. The design concept is similar to the current Beluga, with the distinctive lowered cockpit, cargo bay structure, rear-end and tail being amongst the items which are newly developed.
