Qatar Airways: first A350 in Geneva


Qatar Airways announces the arrival of the A350 XWB on the Swiss market. This state of the art aircraft will serve Geneva starting 1 May 2017. The A350 offers increased capacity: 14 additional seats in Business class, 15 additional seats in Economy class.

Composed of mid-sized wide-body aircraft and designed to optimise fuel consumption, operating costs and environmental efficiency on average to long-haul flights, the A350 XWB family incorporates the latest innovations in terms of aerodynamics, design and technology. 

The A350 XWB is arranged in two classes of service. The Business class has 36 seats in 1-2-1 configuration, with 203 cm beds, reclining to 180°, direct access to the corridor and 17-inch HD screens. Economy class offers 247 seats with a width of 46 cm, in 3-3-3 configuration, with spacing of 81 cm. Each seat will be equipped with a 10.6 inches screen, and passengers with a window seat can benefit from additional shoulder space thanks to the vertical cabins

More than 70% of the fuselage of the A350 XWB is formed of performance materials and combines composite (53%), titanium and new generation aluminium alloys. The innovative, reinforced carbon fibre fuselage allows a reduction in fuel consumption and is easier to maintain. Launch customer of the A350 XWB, Qatar Airways has largely contributed to its cutting-edge design alongside Airbus, the manufacturer of the device, and Rolls-Royce, the engine supplier.

Qatar Airways is the only airline in the world to operate all devices of the Airbus portfolio. In addition to the sixty-eight A350 ordered, company's Airbus fleet includes the following types of aircraft: A320, A330 cargo, A319LR, A321, A330, A340 and A380.
