written by WOFA | March 2, 2020

Aeroflot has taken delivery of its first A350-900, becoming the launch operator of the latest generation wide-body aircraft in eastern Europe.

The Russian carrier will fly the plane from Moscow to a number of destinations including London, Dubai, New York, Miami, Osaka and Beijing.

Aeroflot has a total of 22 A350s on order, with plans for as many as 10 to arrive this year. They’re set to replace the airline’s 20 A330s.

The first passenger flight, as things stand, will see the aircraft flying from Moscow to Dubai for just under a week.

At the end of January 2020, the A350 XWB Family had received 935 firm orders from 50 customers worldwide, making it one of the most successful wide-body aircraft ever.

Airbus claims the A350 XWB offers unrivalled operational flexibility and efficiency for all market segments – up to ultra long-haul (9,700 nautical miles) and its ‘Airspace by Airbus’ cabin is the quietest of any twin-aisle aircraft.

The aircraft has a three-class cabin layout with 316 seats: 28 private business class suites with full-flat seats, 24 comfort class with extra legroom and 264 economy class.


In addition, Airbus said the latest generation Panasonic eX3 in-flight entertainment system, HD screens and Wi-Fi connectivity will ensure enhanced experience for all passengers on long-haul flights.
