United Airlines increases its Airbus A350 order

 

United Airlines has increased the number of Airbus A350 XWB aircraft it will bring into its fleet, updating and expanding its previously existing order for 35 A350-1000 to 45 A350-900 widebody aircraft to replace older, less efficient aircraft, supporting future growth at the airline. 

These aircraft will be the first Airbus widebodies to join United’s global fleet.

The 100th A350 was delivered at the end of July 2017, just some 30 months after the first delivery of the world’s most modern widebody aircraft in December 2014. To date, Airbus has recorded a total of 848 firm orders for the A350 XWB from 45 customers worldwide.
