Airbus has delivered today the A350-900 MSN16 with register number VN-A888 to Vietnam Airlines
This aircraft which airborne on 10/Sep –it was the 14th aircraft to fly- was registered for flight tests as F-WZFK.
Airbus has delivered as of today 8 A350-900s, with Qatar Airways operating 4, Vietnam Airlines 3 and Finnair 1.
Vietnam is currently operating Tokyo, Seoul and Paris routes and this MSN16 will probably start in coming days with some of these routes from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh bases.
Although it was initially planned that MSN8 and MSN11 were going to be delivered to Qatar Airways before this MSN16, Vietnam Airlines has finally bypassed both mentioned aircraft.
Neither Airbus nor Qatar Airways have disclosed the reasons behind this delay.
