During the ceremony at Nordenham, Daniel Wenninger, Program Head at Airbus for the front and rear fuselage of the A350-1000, said: "In addition to higher loads and the use of new structural technologies, the over 3-metres longer fuselage section for the -1000 made considerable modifications in the design and construction necessary compared to its sister model A350-900. "
"The team managed to devise a first-class design for this highly complex aircraft component and to deliver it on time and in the desired high quality. That is something they can be proud of."
