The aircraft will be equipped with efficient Rolls Royce Trent XWB engines and will deliver huge operational benefits through Airbus’ unique family values.

IAG secured commercial terms for the A350 aircraft as part of the Group long-haul order announced in April 2013.

“We are very proud that IAG has chosen the A350-900 aircraft for Iberia. We welcome a new operator of the most efficient mid-size long-haul aircraft in the market,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. “The A350XWB is the aircraft of choice in its category and set to become a reference among passengers for its unrivalled cabin comfort and quietness.” ‎

The A350 XWB is the latest addition to the market-leading Airbus Widebody product line. Offering its customers a 25 per cent reduction in fuel-burn, the all-new mid-size long-range A350 XWB Family comprises three versions from 276 to 369 seats. The A350 has carbon fibre fuselage and wings and sets new standards in terms of passenger experience, operational efficiency and cost-effectiveness. At the end of June 2014, the A350 XWB had won 742 orders from 38 customers worldwide.
