Aeroflot has taken delivery of its first Airbus A350-900 aircraft. This makes the airline the first A350 customer from Russia.
Together with the new aircraft type, the Russian flag carrier also introduces an updated livery, which was already rolled out in January. While the new design does keep the general scheme of the previous livery, it replaced the iconic silver with a while colour tone.
The brand new aircraft features 28 new private Business Class suites with full-flat seats. In total, the airline’s A350 has a three-class cabin layout with 316 seats.
Aeroflot will operate its A350-900 on routes from Moscow to a number of destinations including London, Dubai, New York, Miami, Osaka and Beijing. The airline has a total of 22 A350s on order, including eight which were previously listed as undisclosed.
In addition to the Airbus A350 aircraft, Aeroflot’s wide-body fleet consists of Airbus A330 and Boeing 777-300ER jets. It cancelled an order for Boeing 787 Dreamliner in 2019.
