Airbus will demonstrate its product family at this year’s ILA Berlin Show, Germany, on 20th May 2014.
Airbus explains it will use the show to highlight its wide body product range, whilst the opening day will see the first ever display of the company’s A350 XWB test aircraft.
Compared to current generation long- range twin- engine aircraft, Airbus claim the A350 XWB is up to 25% more fuel efficient, due to an intelligent use of advanced materials, latest state of the art aerodynamics, cutting edge systems and new generation engines.
Airbus states an Airbus A380 will also be on show, as well as an A400M on static and flying display during the first day of the show.
Airbus claim the fuel-saving and cost-effective Airbus wide body product line is unique, offering airlines tailored and efficient growth opportunities, while the A400M is a true game-changer in modern air-transport capabilities for military and humanitarian missions.
