IAG Orders 8 A350-900 Aircraft for Iberia
International Airlines Group announced it ordered eight Airbus A350-900 wide-body jets for its Iberia subsidiary. IAG originally had options for the planes but converted them to firm orders.
The A350-900 is part of Airbus’ all-new A350 XWB family, and is configured with 314 seats in a three-class structure. Its high fuel capacity makes possible trips as long as 8,100 nautical miles.
The aircraft is a direct competitor of the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.
Iberia was founded on June 28, 1927. It is the largest airline in Spain, and is the country’s flag carrier.
