Finnair’s A350 XWB

Finnair is the first European airline to operate the new Airbus A350 XWB and has ordered 19 of the aircraft. The A350 XWB features an extra-wide cabin with more room and more light from bigger windows.

With new engines and lighter fuselage than previous generation aircraft, the A350 creates as much as 25% less CO2 emissions and is also quieter in and outside the cabin than any other aircraft of its size and generation.
