Qatar Shows Off First A350

Qatar Airways’ first Airbus A350-900 has broken cover with its full livery, although the aircraft has yet to have its powerplants installed.

The Doha-based airline will be the initial recipient of the A350 when it takes delivery of the jet by the end of the year.

It has shown off the first aircraft in the carrier’s distinctive grey-and-maroon livery but without its Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines.

Qatar Airways has 80 A350s on order. The airline is also preparing to take delivery of its first A380.

Qatar Airways has lifted the veil on its first Airbus A350 dressed in full livery, ahead of the next-generation jet's debut towards the end of this year.

The Gulf airline, which is the prized global launch customer for the A350, has ordered 80 of the twin-aisle jets and already tipped Doha to Perth as an early route for 2015. In addition to ordering 43 of the mid-sized A350-900, Qatar has also signed up for 37 of the stretched A350-1000, which has room for 350 passengers in a three-class cabin and will enter service in mid-2017.

Qatar's colours previously adorned one of the A350 test aircraft as a special 'launch customer' livery.

While Qatar will be first to fly the Airbus A350, several other airlines will be quick to follow.
