Competition design brief 

The A350F is a large freighter aircraft giving you over 1000m2 (622mi2) of surface to play with! Your creation should consider how this new generation, advanced, modern aircraft can benefit air freight operators and airlines from around the globe. 

Depending on your style, your design can be simple or detailed, hand drawn, painted or created using any medium you choose. It can be completely abstract or realistic, submitted in 1 or many colours. The sky is literally the limit!

If your idea is chosen, our design experts will work with you to produce the final livery design, perfectly adapted for the A350F. It will be seen for the first time in the air on its first flight planned for 2024 and will be used to showcase the aircraft to operators and airlines around the world.

Get to know the A350F

In line with Airbus’ mission to pioneer sustainable aerospace for a safe and united world,  Airbus announced the launch of a brand new large freighter, the A350F in November last year. This freighter has been designed to reduce fuel burn and carbon emissions by up to 40% compared to freighters currently flying. 

How will  the A350F achieve this? It all comes down to the significant weight savings achieved through its use of advanced materials, latest generation efficient engines and state of the art technologies. 

The A350F will give the large air freight market an aircraft that will be much easier and more efficient to operate. It will also require less maintenance and deliver up to 40% savings in operational costs compared to current in service freighters.
