FIA 2014: A330neo officially launched as “complementation” for A350 family.

The British Prime Minister, David Cameron, has today officially opened the Farnborough International Airshow (FIA) 2014. He has visited the MSN4 A350 prototype accompanied by Tom Enders (Airbus Group CEO) and Al Baker (Qatar Airways CEO).

D.Cameron, T.Enders and Al Baker spent some time in the cockpit and interior of the A350, for which Qatar Airways is the global launch customer.

The aircraft is a key part of the flying display at this year’s show and is being displayed in Qatar Airways’ livery.

Qatar Airways has an Airbus A350, an A320 and a Boeing 787 Dreamliner on display at Farnborough, with the latter two being on static display. “Qatar Airways is pleased to be at the heart of this year’s Farnborough Air Show. We have 3 of the finest aircraft in the world on display, demonstrating our dynamic growth and focus on world-class quality, and are confident this week will be a successful showcase for Qatar Airways” said Al Baker.


On the first day of the Airshow, Airbus has formally launched the A330neo. Its launch has significant consequences for the A350 family. Airbus looks set to finally drop the A350-800, which is down to only 34 orders. “I believe all of our customers will either convert to the A350-900 or the A330neo”, Airbus President and CEO Fabrice Bregier said. “The A330neo is the more efficient solution (compared to the A350-800).”
