IAG Cargo celebrates one year of A350-1000, it has made 150 cargo-only flights during Covid-19
It’s been over a year since IAG Cargo took delivery of the A350-1000, the latest iteration of the future-facing, wide-body aircraft from Airbus.
Made from a combination of carbon composites, titanium and aluminium alloys, the A350-1000 offers lower fuel burn and fewer carbon dioxide emissions than other aircraft, with its nitrogen oxide emissions nearly a third below the current industry standard.
Featuring the most powerful engine within the Airbus fleet with 97,000 pounds of thrust on take-off, and, at over 240 feet long, measures close to the length of a football field.
The additional payload capability and range means that the A350-1000 can manage long-haul IAG Cargo routes such as to Austin, Dubai, Bangalore, Boston, Chicago, Toronto, Tel Aviv and Washington Dulles. It offers as much cargo capacity as the B777-300, IAG Cargo’s “work horse”, which can hold the maximum number of 14 pallets of any aircraft.
Between April and August, the A350-1000 has flown nearly 150 cargo-only flights as part of the pandemic response, transporting everything from sanitiser to chilled beef to destinations in the Middle East and North America.
