TOULOUSE, France -- Airbus delivered the world’s first A350-1000 widebody airliner to launch customer Qatar Airways at a delivery event in Toulouse, France. Qatar Airways is the world’s largest A350 XWB family customer with 76 aircraft on order and the largest A350-1000 customer.

The aircraft is the first of 37 A350-1000s ordered by the carrier and is the first ever Airbus aircraft fitted with the new Qsuite seats, offering the first ever double bed in business class.

"Qatar Airways always demands the very best for its customers, so it is right that we are the first airline in the world to fly the Airbus A350-1000," said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker.

The A350-1000 is Airbus’ latest and largest widebody airliner. With a fuselage stretched by 23 feet (7 meters), the A350-1000 space for premium cabin products is 40 percent larger than that of its smaller sibling. In Qatar Airways' configuration, the A350-1000 offers 44 additional seats. It is a truly long-range aircraft with a range of 8,000 nautical miles (14,800 km). The A350-1000 features a modified wing trailing-edge, new six-wheel main landing gears and more powerful Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-97 engines.

The A350-1000 fits seamlessly alongside Qatar Airways’ growing fleet, which already includes 20 A350-900s.
