Fiji Airways receives first A350-900
- 15 November 2019 -
Fiji Airways has taken delivery of its first of two Airbus A350-900 aircraft. Both airplanes are being leased from Dubai-based DAE Capital.
The airline is the first Airbus customer in the South Pacific region to take delivery of the A350 XWB wide-body airliner. It will fly its A350-900 on its Nadi-Los Angeles and Nadi-Sydney routes, to support the ongoing growth of Fiji’s tourism sector and economy in general. The aircraft is configured in a two-class layout with 334 seats: 33 full flat business and 301 economy class seats, 39 of which are designated as 'Bula Space' seats with extra legroom.
Fiji Airways currently operates a fleet of six A330 Family aircraft, which are operated on a common type rating with the A350 XWB, so that pilots and crews can fly on both aircraft types.
So far, Airbus has received orders for well over 900 A350 XWB Family aircraft from 50 customers worldwide. (Photo: Airbus)
