Fiji Airways’ first A350 XWB has rolled out of the Airbus paint shop in Toulouse featuring the airline’s livery. The aircraft, an A350-900, leased from Dubai Aerospace Enterprises, will be the first of its type to be operated by an airline in the South-Pacific region.
The aircraft will now proceed to the final phase of the assembly process, with the installation of engines followed by ground and flight tests, before delivery to Fiji Airways in Q4.
The aircraft will be configured with 33 full lie-flat business class and 301 economy class seats. The aircraft will be deployed to enhance existing long-haul services from Fiji to Australia and the US, and to provide the opportunity to open additional routes.
