Emirates cancels Airbus A350 XWB order
Airbus has today confirmed that Emirates Airline has decided to cancel its order of 70 A350 XWB.
The decision follows on-going discussions with the airline in light of their fleet requirement review, as demonstrated by their order of 50 additional A380 at the last Dubai Airshow and their continuous interest in the program.
The order of 50 A350-900 and 20 A350-1000 was originally placed by Emirates Airline in 2007 with first delivery slots scheduled from 2019.
Half a year before entry into service, the A350 XWB order book stands at 742 firm orders. The A350 flight test campaign is progressing well and is on track for Type Certification in the coming months.
