After gaining 370-minute certification for the A350-900, Airbus continues preparations for entry into service with additional approvals like in-cockpit Wi-Fi.
In the cockpit, A350 pilots will have access to Wi-Fi connectivity, allowing them to retrieve weather information from the Internet in real time on a tablet, for instance.
Airbus demonstrated compliance of the A350 with the -307 standard for tolerance to electromagnetic interference.
Another claimed benefit includes the combined use and intercommunication of a pilot-attached device (e.g. a tablet) with the aircraft-attached electronic flight bag.
The airline would still carry responsibility for implementing the actual technical solution and obtaining a local approval, Airbus said.
