KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airlines Bhd’s (MAB) six new A350-900s aircraft, acquired on lease from Aircraft Lease Corp (ALC), will be delivered between the fourth quarter of 2017 and second quarter of 2018.

MAB will operate the aircraft, powered by two Rolls Royce Trent XWB engines, on its premium routes with a luxurious three class layout.

Airbus manufacture of parts for the aircraft had begun around the world, including at its Malaysia-based industrial partners, CTRM and Spirits Aerosystems, at plants in Malacca and Subang respectively.

Airbus A350 XWB work undertaken at CTRM and Spirits Aerosystems currently includes the manufacture of components for wings and engine nacelles.

The A350 XWB is the world’s latest generation airliner and the newest member of Airbus modern, comfortable and efficient widebody product family, featuring the latest aerodynamic design, carbon fibre fuselage and 1`1` wings.

The latest technologies translate into unrivalled levels of operational efficiency, with a 25% reduction in fuel burn and emissions, and significantly lower maintenance costs.

To date, Airbus has recorded 810 firm orders for the A350 XWB from 43 customers worldwide, making it one of the most successful widebody aircraft ever.
