PARIS, FRANCEAir France took delivery of its 10th Airbus A350-900. The aircraft, registration F-HTYK, rolled off the Airbus assembly line in Toulouse and took off for Paris-Charles de Gaulle on June 18, where it will operate on the airline's long-haul routes.



The front of the fuselage bears the name 'Aubusson', named after the town in the Creuse region of France, whose tapestries are famous throughout the world. Since 2019 and the delivery of the first Airbus A350, Air France has resumed the legendary tradition of naming its aircraft after French cities. Aubusson is the 46th city to be honored in this way.

In a few days' time, ‘Aubusson’ will be joined at Paris-Charles de Gaulle by ‘Cannes’, Air France’s 11th Airbus A350.

Thanks to the Airbus A350-900's eco-friendly technology, Air France aims to reduce its carbon footprint in line with its HORIZON 2030 commitments.

The latest-generation A350 consumes 25% less fuel than previous-generation aircraft thanks in particular to the use of 67% lighter materials: 53% composites and 14% titanium. Its noise footprint is also reduced by 40%.

Between now and 2025, Air France will take delivery of 38 Airbus A350s to modernize its long-haul fleet. The renewal of the short and medium-haul fleet will begin in September, with the delivery of the first of the 60 Airbus A220s ordered by the French flag carrier.
