The first A350 has been delivered to Qatar Airways

Airbus delivered this morning the very first A350 to Qatar Airways. An event for Airbus, and Qatar Airways, the first airline in the world to receive this aircraft. The A350, built mostly of composite materials, is the sixth airliner designed by Airbus after the A300, A320, A330, A340 and A380, and is the culmination of a programme that required an investment of ten billion euros.

According to Qatar Airways, the maiden flight of the aircraft, between Doha and Frankfurt, remains on schedule for 15th., January. For a few months, Qatar Airways will be the only airline to operate the A350 until Vietnam Airlines takes delivery of its first aircraft sometime in 2015.
