Singapore Airshow will get the A350's full debut on the ground and in the air display.

Airbus will present the A350 XWB at the Singapore Airshow in February, marking the first full display of the aircraft at an international air show. The flight test aircraft participating in Singapore will be MSN 003, which will be on static display 11th – 12th February and will also take part in the flying display on both days.

This prototype is the same that has been in Bolivia and Martinique last week and will spend this week in Canada.

The aircraft’s participation at Singapore will enable visitors to get a close-up look at the aircraft both on the ground and in the air, with a flying display that will demonstrate its manoeuvrability, sleek design and exceptionally low noise levels.

“I am very pleased to announce that we will bring the A350 XWB to Singapore,” said Fabrice Brégier, Airbus President and Chief Executive Officer. “The Asia-Pacific region is the fastest growing market for the air transport industry and will drive future demand for widebody aircraft in all seat categories. The A350 XWB will set new standards in the mid-size category and will consolidate our position as the provider of the world’s most modern, comprehensive and efficient widebody product line.”

Carriers from the region that have already ordered the aircraft include AirAsia X, Air China, Asiana Airlines, Cathay Pacific Airways, China Airlines, Hong Kong Airlines, Japan Airlines, Singapore Airlines, SriLankan Airlines, Thai Airways International and Vietnam Airlines.

To date, firm orders from the region for the aircraft already total 244, representing 30% of total A350 XWB sales.

  1. And should people from Spain involved in the A350 go to Singapore to watch the aircraft flying? It was flying over German, British and French sites but not over Spanish sites in Cádiz, Toledo and Madrid where the wing lower cover, HTP and S19 is manufactured.
    Come on Didier, we are waiting for that.
