Airbus MSN005 developmental A350 XWB jetliner travelled to Asia on the second trip of its global route-proving tour to demonstrate the aircrafts readiness for airline operations. In this phase, the jetliner flew from Toulouse, France to Hong Kong, and then operated multiple flights between Hong Kong and Singapore before returning to Toulouse. The Asian trip allowed Airbus to evaluate the A350 XWBs performance in hot and humid conditions, as well as showcase the aircraft for Cathay Pacific Airways which has 46 of these highly efficient jetliners on order.
Our sincere apologies for having Hong-Kong and Singapore's national flags wrong in a previous version of this video. We have corrected our mistake.
