International Airlines Group (IAG) has ordered eight Airbus A350-900 aircrafts for Iberia. The conversion of these eight aircraft options into firm orders is part of IAG's long-haul order announced in April 2013.

LATAM Airlines orders 27 Airbus A350-900 jetliners

Quote:

LATAM Airlines Group, Latin America's largest airline, said it has ordered 27 new Airbus A350-900 jetliners for $7 billion.

Roberto Alvo, LATAM's chief corporate officer, made the announcement during the presentation here Thursday morning of a prototype of the new Airbus A350 XWB family of long-range, wide-body aircraft, which includes the A350-900, telling Chilean Web portal Emol that the planes will arrive between December 2015 and 2019.

Santiago-based LATAM is the result of a 2012 merger of Chile's LAN and Brazil's TAM airlines, which continue to operate as separate brands.

TAM will fly the new jets, mainly on routes from Brazil to cities in other countries, Alvo said.

"We're going to equip this plane with the latest cabin technology, with the most comfortable seats on the market, the most modern on-board entertainment systems. We're going to have much more space on the aircraft," he said.

For his part, Airbus' president for the Latin American and Caribbean region, Rafael Alonso, hailed the deal and said the Blagnac, France-based aircraft manufacturer accounts for "62 percent of the planes sold in the region."

"This year we've reached more than 50 percent of the planes in operation" in Latin America, he said. EFE

You got to be critical about poor journalism. It's not a new order, it was just LATAM saying that they have ordered 27 A350s in total (2 orders in 2008 and 2010) at the press event for the A350 visit to Sao Paulo.

ps. LATAM recently announced that they are installing the same product in their 787-9s and A350-900s. It's going to be interesting to see if this will mean that some of the A350s will go to LAN and some 787-9s to TAM.

No actual date is scheduled. Airbus has actually been a bit quiet about it, even with the current publicity tour. But it's still planned for a late November / December delivery, depending on certification and if Qatar doesn't delay it at the last moment.

Looks like this program is making a good progress: MSN006, the first production frame has been painted in QR's color. I should be rolled out soon I believe.

Airbus A350 XWB completes its Route Proving World Tour

Quote:




The world’s newest Widebody airliner, the Airbus A350-900, has successfully completed a series of Route Proving trials, receiving an enthusiastic welcome at each of the 14 cities it has visited over the past three weeks. At the technical Route Proving the aircraft must demonstrate its readiness for airline operations on a global scale. This last series of trials is required for Type Certification, which is expected in Q3 this year.

The A350 XWB completed its Route Proving after landing in Toulouse, France on August 13th (17:00 UTC) coming from Helsinki, Finland. The exercise took the flight test aircraft, MSN 005, across the globe on an impressive 20-day trip flying over the North Pole, each ocean and stopping at 14 major international airports world-wide. During its World Tour, the aircraft flew approximately 81,700 nm /151,300 km in some 180 flight hours, with all flights performing on schedule. The aircraft was operated by Airbus flight crews as well as Qatar flight crews on the route from Doha to Perth, Moscow and Helsinki. The Airworthiness Authority pilots from the European Aviation Safety Agency also participated and flew the aircraft on two legs.

A major highlight was the trip from Johannesburg Tambo International Airport, located at 5,558 feet (1,694m) above sea level, to Sydney, demonstrating the A350’s excellent performance at high altitude airports. The flights from Johannesburg to Sydney and Auckland to Santiago de Chile demonstrated also its capability to fly ultra-long-haul routes or Extended range Twin Operations (ETOPS).

“The aircraft has performed remarkably well confirming the high level of maturity that it has been demonstrating all the way during our development and certification tests. We are set for the Type Certification in the coming weeks, as planned”, said Fernando Alonso, Senior Vice President Flight & Integration Tests, and added: “I truly believe that the aircraft is fit to enter into service and perform to the expectations of our Customers.”

The technical Route Proving commenced on July 24th in Toulouse/France and comprised the following destinations: Frankfurt, Singapore and Hong-Kong. On the third trip, the aircraft visited Johannesburg, Sydney, followed by Auckland, Santiago de Chile and Sao Paulo. The fourth and final journey included Perth followed by Doha, Moscow and Helsinki.



At each destination, the A350 XWB performed as expected and on schedule. Checks were made on standard maintenance as well as typical airport operations and compatibility. The automatic landing capability of the A350 XWB was also successfully demonstrated during a local flight performed at Johannesburg.

The A350 XWB is the latest addition to the market-leading Airbus Widebody product line. Offering its customers a 25% reduction in fuel-burn, the all-new mid-size long-range A350 XWB Family comprises three versions from 276 to 369 seats. The A350 has carbon fibre fuselage and wings and sets new standards in terms of passenger experience, operational efficiency and cost-effectiveness. At the end of June 2014, the A350 XWB had won 742 orders from 38 customers worldwide.
