【チャイナエアライン】 China Airlines Takes Delivery of First A350

t 12PM on September 30, China Airlines held the handover ceremony for the its first A350-900 XWB (Extra Wide Body) passenger aircraft at the Airbus Delivery Centre in Toulouse, France. The ceremony was co-hosted by China Airlines Chairman Nuan-Hsuan Ho and Airbus Executive Vice President Didier Evrard. Guests on the day included Ambassador Ming-Chung Chang from the Taipei Representative Office in France. The delivery made China Airlines the first airline in Taiwan to operate this model.

The new Airbus A350-900 XWB passenger aircraft has been praised for being the “most high-tech, most energy-efficient, most eco-friendly, most spacious and least noisy" green passenger aircraft in the world. 70% of the aircraft is made from all new composite materials for improved flight safety; the enhanced cabin environment with a 30 air changes an hour offers improved passenger comfort; the latest Rolls-Royce engines reduce fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions by over 25%. Each aircraft is therefore expected to save China Airlines up to NT$70 million a year. The cabin noise is just 57 dB as well making it quite possibly the quietest passenger aircraft in the industry.
