Cathay Pacific Receives its First Airbus A350

Prepare for takeoff

Cathay Pacific Airlines recently welcomed the newest member to its fleet with the arrival of the first of its 20 Airbus A350-1000 aircraft. The long-distance airliner uses a blend of biofuel, which is a seamless fit with the airline’s initiatives to reduce the impact of greenhouse gas emissions.

Passenger comfort was at the forefront of the aircraft’s new cabin design, which now features a brand-new Economy Class seat. It boasts a larger, higher-definition personal television and an advanced in-flight entertainment system and LED mood lighting.

Those flying in this innovative aircraft – powered by Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-97 engines – can expect a spacious and quiet atmosphere, wider seats and elegant ambient lighting, all of which will have a dual role in contributing to a beautiful interior while also minimising the effects of jet lag.
