A new generation
The Airbus A350-1000 is the latest addition to the Airbus A350 XWB
(Extra Wide Body) family, a leader in the large, long-haul aircraft market.
It's an aircraft with impressive technological prowess.
Its wings, directly inspired by nature, allow the Airbus A350 to significantly reduce its fuel consumption.
The A350's wings change shape throughout the flight like those of a bird, and its revolutionary "winglets" (outer wing tips) optimize the aircraft's aerodynamics.
With a major ambition to reduce its environmental footprint, French bee, in partnership with Airbus, has completed its first low-emission intercontinental Fello'fly flight in November 2021.
The Fello'fly project consists in making aircraft fly long-haul flights in a V formation, like migrating birds. These flights allow the exploitation of the wake phenomenon: planes in the rear take advantage of the wake created by the leading plane to propel themselves using less energy.
Inspired by biomimetics (the design and production of materials, structures and systems inspired by nature), Fello'fly is therefore based on energy recovery to reduce emissions; the following aircraft recovers the energy lost by the leader, reducing its fuel consumption by about 5% per trip.
of CO2 emissions
The Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines allow for significant fuel savings and a 25% reduction in CO² emissions.
One of the most fuel-efficient aircraft on the market.
Use of advanced materials that are
and more rigid
More than 70% of the A350 XWB is made from advanced materials and brings together titanium, new generation aluminum alloys and (53%) carbon fiber composites, a lighter, stronger and more rigid material.
Thanks to all these innovations, the A350 XWB
its carbon footprint.
French bee, and its sister company Air Caraïbes, are the first airlines in the world to be Green Pilot® certified for their commitment towards sustainable development.
Green Pilot is a label rewarding CO2 emission reduction programs, evaluating the quality of the green policy implemented in an airline's operations and the commitment of its employees towards this strategy.
Innovative technology and design
Designed specifically for long-haul flights, the Airbus A350 XWB features the latest Airbus innovations for the passengers' comfort :
(air is renewed every 3 minutes)
40% less noise reduction vs
previous generation aircraft
to allow better rest
and gentle waking
The Airbus A350 Family offers clean air via HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Arrestor) filters that remove 99.9% of particles in the air, up to the size of microscopic bacteria or viruses. All cabin air is completely renewed approximately every 2 to 3 minutes.
The A350's cabin altitude is lower thanks to the composite fuselage: 6,000 feet compared to 8,000 feet for an aircraft with an aluminum fuselage, which reduces passenger fatigue after a long-haul flight.
The A350 cabin is the quietest in the wide-body aircraft category and offers passengers and crew the most modern equipments for the most comfortable flying experience.
the first airline with a 100%
modern A350 fleet
French bee, the first airline solely-operating A350s, relies on a modern fleet of aircraft that are specifically-designed for long-haul destinations for a superior level of comfort.
French bee currently has four Airbus A350-900 and one Airbus 350-1000.
A second one is planned for 2022.

In the cabin, comfort comes first
In Eco or Premium, a new travel experience awaits you.
The XWB (Extra Wide Body) aspect of French bee's A350 ensures comfort for all passengers in both travel classes.
The A350-900's cabin configuration (411 seats) is as follows: 376 seats in economy class and 35 seats in premium class.
The A350-1000 (480 seats) is configured as follows: 440 seats in economy class and 40 seats in premium class.
In both cabins, all seats enjoy an unprecedented ceiling height (the highest on the market) and larger windows to increase the perception of space on board.
The A350's cabin is the quietest on the market with four times less noise compared to previous generation aircraft.
A noticeable difference which, coupled with lighting that adapts to the various phases of flight, ensures a comfortable travel environment for all. No more feeling tired upon arrival!
