Air France Welcomes its 1st AIRBUS A350

On September 27, 2019, Air France took delivery of its first Airbus A350 at the Airbus delivery centre in Toulouse (France).

This new more environmentally-friendly latest-generation aircraft is equipped with 324 seats, with 34 in the Business cabin, 24 in Premium Economy and 266 in Economy.

By 2025, the company will welcome a total of 28 Airbus A350-900s into its fleet.

Air France's Airbus A350 will make its first commercial flight on October 7. It will be gradually deployed to 6 destinations in 2020.

An asset for reducing our environmental footprint

For many years, Air France has been committed to reducing its environmental footprint by implementing concrete actions – weight reduction on board, reducing and recycling waste, promoting eco-piloting, reducing the noise footprint, reducing and offsetting CO2 emissions and eliminating single-use plastic items.

Nonetheless, the main lever for reducing our environmental footprint remains our fleet modernization today symbolized by this very first A350.

This aircraft consumes 25% less fuel (i.e. 2.5 litres per passenger/100 km) thanks to the incorporation of materials which are up to 67% lighter – 53% composites and 14% titanium. In addition, its noise footprint is reduced by 40%.

A new definition of comfort

On board the Air France Airbus A350, customers enjoy:

- a more spacious cabin in Business, Premium Economy and Economy class, - windows that are 30% larger, - a different air pressure system providing a more comfortable cabin atmosphere with regularly renewed cabin air, - lighting adapted to the different flight phases.
