A350 XWB A350-900 Airbus Asia Aurbus

New airliner A350-900 took off today from Toulouse for its very first demo tour taking it on an 11-day trip around Asia.

This Asian Demo Tour follows the completion of the A350-900 flight test campaign which recently led to the EASA and FAA type certification. After visiting Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia earlier this year during the route proving certification exercise, the A350-900 will now visit more airports and customers in Asia Pacific to demonstrate the aircraft’s credentials. The region is one of the fastest growing markets for air transport and represents a third of the 750 A350 XWB orders won to date.

The journey will take the aircraft to Seoul (GMP), Tokyo (HND), Hanoi (HAN), Bangkok (BKK) and Kuala Lumpur (KUL) during a period of 11 days, from Monday 17th to Friday 28th November.
