Airbus A350-1000

The Airbus A350-1000 is more environmentally friendly and was the first aircraft type to premiere our Club World cabin - Club Suite.

A greener way to fly

The Airbus A350 is one of the most fuel-efficient aircraft operating in the world today. The state-of-the-art aircraft is built from advanced materials. A combination of carbon composites, titanium and modern aluminium alloys delivers environmental benefits such as lower fuel burn and reduced CO2 emissions.

Its nitrogen oxide emissions are nearly a third below the current industry standard, with noise levels also much lower compared to previous generations. It’s a huge leap forward for greener air travel.

The Trent XWB engines used on our A350-1000 aircraft have the lowest specific fuel consumption for any turbofan aircraft in service today, contributing to lowering CO2 emission.

Making your journey a little bit smoother

Inspired by birds

The A350 has a revolutionary adaptive wing design - inspired by birds – which morphs while airborne to achieve maximum aerodynamic efficiency.

Cabin air in the A350 is renewed every two to three minutes to minimise the effects of jet lag, meaning you arrive at your destination feeling more refreshed than ever.
