First Thai A350 Set for Tests

The first Airbus A350 XWB for Thai Airways International has been rolled out of the cabin finishing and engine installation facility.  The aircraft, wearing test registration F-WZGQ (c/n 044), will now undergo ground testing before making its maiden flight.  The jet is scheduled for delivery in the third quarter of this year and will be re-registered HS-THB in the Thai national carrier’s fleet.

Airbus says the A350 XWB is ideally suited to the needs of Asia/Pacific carriers, revealing that of the total orders to date (802), airlines in the region have ordered a third (267 aircraft).
