Aeroflot Commits to Airbus A350XWB

25 March 2007

The Russian flag carrier Aeroflot has signed a Memorandum of Understanding for 22 Airbus A350XWB aircraft.

Aeroflot’s decision brings the total number of orders and commitments for the Airbus A350XWB to 248.

“When we launched the A350XWB programme, we set our sights on a totally new aircraft, with the widest fuselage in its category, offering unprecedented levels of comfort in the 270 to 350 passenger segment. This aircraft will meet the challenge of high fuel prices, rising passenger expectations and increasing environmental concerns. The outstanding result is unprecedented comfort, combined with the lowest operating costs and lowest seat mile cost of any aircraft in this category. We are delighted Aeroflot has chosen our aircraft for its next generation long-haul fleet”, said Fabrice Bregier, Airbus COO.
