Finnair is due to take delivery of its first Airbus A350-900 XWB at Toulouse on 7 October.
The carrier is the lead European customer for the twinjet, which is powered by the Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engine and has been carrying out ground and flight checks since its maiden flight some weeks ago at Airbus headquarters.
The aircraft will be deployed on routes to several European cities over a two-week period before Finnair introduces it to the long-haul network, beginning with flights to Shanghai on 25 October.
The airline has 19 A350s on order and plans to introduce them on services to prime destinations including Beijing, Bangkok, Hong Kong and Singapore by next May.
Qatar Airways and Vietnam Airlines have already introduced the A350. www.finnair.com
