When China Airlines received its seventh A350 XWB today, the carrier took possession of the 100th jetliner delivered from this newest family in Airbus’ industry-leading widebody product line.

The milestone aircraft is an A350-900 version, joining China Airlines’ growing A350 XWB fleet – adding to the line-up of widebody A330s and A340s flown by the long-time Airbus customer, which is based in Taiwan. 

Having now received half of its 14 A350-900s on order, China Airlines is benefitting from the A350 XWB’s maturity and flexibility on both regional and long-haul services – including the Taipei-San Francisco route.

Shaping the future of air travel, the A350 XWB is the world’s most modern aircraft family, offering true long-range capability, unrivalled operational efficiency and an exclusive passenger experience. To date, more than 13 million passengers have benefitted from the A350 XWB’s on-board comfort in the quietest twin-aisle jetliner today, while also enjoying the spaciousness of its “Airspace by Airbus” cabin.

This 100th A350-900 delivery, the 36th so far in 2017, took place some 30 months after first delivery. Not only does this demonstrate a solid production ramp-up, it is the fastest widebody production ramp-up for Airbus – on track to reach rate 10 aircraft per month by the end of 2018.

The A350 XWB is Airbus’ all-new mid-size long-range aircraft family. Currently in service with 14 operators worldwide, A350 XWBs are being flown on more than 110 routes around the globe, with an operational reliability of 99%.

As of the end of June, Airbus’ A350 XWB family had logged 847 firm orders from 45 customers.
