Lufthansa’ first Airbus A350-900 completes its first flight in Toulouse

The pictured Lufthansa Airbus A350-900 took off on its first flight in Toulouse on November 29, 2016 but without passengers. The latest Lufthansa fleet aircraft has completed its maiden flight to Munich around three weeks before delivery. An international Airbus crew tested the on-board systems and the behavior of the aircraft during all flight stages.

The Lufthansa Group will receive the first of ten A350-900 on December 19, 2016 and will start its scheduled service between Munich and Delhi on February 10, 2017.

The world’s most modern long-range aircraft is an investment into the future: It reduces emissions by 25 percent and is significantly quieter during take-off than comparable aircraft types.
