  • Published by Ozgur Tore

Qatar Airways is preparing to have a strong presence at the 2014 Farnborough Air Show, taking place this week in Southern England.

The carrier will fly the A350 aircraft with Qatar Airways livery for the first time at a flying display in a European Air Show.

The A350 will make its debut alongside two other major aircraft in the fleet. It is scheduled to join the airline’s fleet at the end of this year. Overall, Qatar Airways will have on display at Farnborough an Airbus A350, A320 and a Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The A350 will feature in the flying display, while the latter two will be on static display.

Now in its advanced flight test programme phase, the efficient A350 XWB airliners are scheduled to enter into commercial service in the fourth quarter of 2014. Qatar Airways has ordered 80 aircraft to date, leaning towards the larger A350-900 and A350-1000 models, which better suit its business model and passenger requirements.

The A350 XWB is a family of mid-sized wide-body airliners designed to enhance fuel, operating costs and environmental efficiencies during medium-to-long haul airline operations. Featuring the very latest in aerodynamics, design and advanced technologies, these highly efficient aircraft provide better fuel efficiency of up to 25 percent. Over 70 percent of the A350 XWB’s weight-efficient airframe is made from advanced materials combining composites (53 percent), titanium and advanced aluminium alloys. The aircraft’s innovative all-new Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) fuselage results in lower fuel burn as well as easier maintenance.
