Qantas Air announce major aircraft order
Qantas have announced an order of 12 A350-1000s, an aircraft designed to redefine the way customers travel with the ability to fly non-stop between Australia’s east coast to almost anywhere in the world.
Partnering with Airbus and Australian industrial designer, David Caon, the A350 promises a five-star flying experience for customers, with premium designer details and all new levels of luxurious comfort. The A350 sets a new standard in premium travel with over forty percent of the aircraft's seats dedicated to premium cabins.
The A350 is designed to be as comfortable for customers as it is convenient. Featuring a Wellbeing Zone complete with a self-serve snack and hydration station and digital displays providing movement and stretching recommendations, generous Economy legroom and cabin interiors designed to work with your body clock and maximise comfort so you'll arrive refreshed and ready at your destination.
The introduction of the A350s will make almost any city in the world just one flight away from Australia. Flights are scheduled for take-off in late 2025 to destinations such as London and New York from Sydney, and will also be able to operate non-stop to other destinations such as Paris and Frankfurt.*
They will also be renewing their domestic Australian fleet from late 2023 and have announced the order of 20 A321XLR and 20 A220-300s which will form the backbone of their domestic fleet. Their range and economics will make new direct routes possible and allow them to offer more choice of flights at different times of the day across our regional and domestic Australian routes.
All of these next generation aircraft – through their lower emissions, longer range, less noise and better economics, will improve how customers can travel around Australia and the world.
