The A350 XWB’s development cabin interior, as installed on board flight-test aircraft MSN002, has been revealed by Airbus. This A350 is the first of two test aircraft fitted with a passenger interior and is part of the growing A350 XWB development fleet.

Chris Emerson, SVP of marketing at Airbus said, “Passenger comfort is an increasingly important differentiator for the airline industry, becoming a fundamental deciding factor driving passenger choice and business success. The A350 XWB is the only aircraft in its sector to truly offer ‘comfort without compromise’, while providing airlines with unrivalled operating economics, flexibility and fuel efficiency.”

A350 XWB MSN002 will be tasked with conducting a series of “Early Long Flights” with its cabin accommodating real passengers. ‘Hot and cold’ cabin trials will also feature in its busy test programme, which also includes validation of advanced fourth-generation IFE. MSN002 will soon be joined by the second cabin-equipped A350 MSN005, which will be tasked with route-proving flights around the world to the major destinations it will serve.
