Pack for your trip, not your flight - Cathay Pacific's new Economy on the A350-1000

Pack for your trip, not your flight - Cathay Pacific's new Economy on the A350-1000

In June, Cathay Pacific welcomed the first of 20 new Airbus A350-1000 aircraft to Hong Kong, at the end of its inaugural flight from the aircraft manufacturer's headquarters in Toulouse, France. Eight of these aircraft will be delivered this year, with the remainder scheduled to arrive by 2021. All delivery flights will be operated using sustainable biofuel that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80% compared with traditional jet fuel.

As the largest variant in the A350 family, Cathay Pacific's A350-1000s will carry a total of 334 passengers – 54 more than the -900 variant – and will also bring major advantages in terms of fuel and cost efficiency, as well as unrivalled passenger comfort. The A350-1000 aircraft will launch Cathay Pacific's new service to Washington DC in mid-September, and will also begin flying to Madrid, Tel Aviv, Amsterdam, Manchester and Zurich later this year.

Powered by the latest Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-97 engines, the A350- 1000 has significant freight capacity – an important feature for Cathay Pacific, as one of the world’s largest cargo airlines.
