The A350 XWB took centre stage in the fast-growing Asian market during its successful 11-day demonstration tour, which was performed ahead of the first customer delivery, planned for coming weeks.
Using its MSN005 A350-900 developmental aircraft, Airbus debuted the A350 XWB in 5 new Asian destinations: Seoul, Tokyo, Hanoi, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur, before returning back in Toulouse on Black-Friday.

Throughout this trip, Airbus underscored the highly-efficient widebody jetliner’s superior operating economics and high levels of passenger comfort, which was highlighted during the visits of key customers, invited airline guests, industry officials, journalists and bloggers.
More than 4.000 people came aboard the aircraft during its Asian stopovers, with 375 of them given the A350 XWB experience during demonstration flights.
Visitors to MSN005 were able to experience first-hand the A350 XWB’s “xtra” wide cabin, which provides more personal space in all classes, the latest in-flight entertainment and connectivity systems, wide panoramic windows, large overhead stowage compartments and precise temperature control.
