Qatar Airways’ first Airbus A350-900 has broken cover with its full livery, although the aircraft has yet to have its powerplants installed.
The Doha-based airline will be the initial recipient of the A350 when it takes delivery of the jet by the end of the year.
It has shown off the first aircraft in the carrier’s distinctive grey-and-maroon livery but without its Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines.
Qatar Airways has 80 A350s on order. The airline is also preparing to take delivery of its first A380.
