Today the first Airbus A350XWB for Vietnam Airlines was delivered to the carrier from the manufacturer’s Toulouse plant.
The aircraft is on lease from AerCap, and is registered VN-A886.
Today’s milestone delivery makes Vietnam Airlines the world’s second A350 XWB operator after the jetliner’s introduction in January by launch customer Qatar Airways.
The airline will initially operate their A350s on crew familiarisation flights between Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi from 5th July, before it commences international duties to Paris and Seoul after the summer.
