On February 17th 2016, Airbus had a press release on Philippine Airlines. According to Airbus, Philippine Airlines is providing high efficiency and comfort for flights going to the US and Europe. There was a Memorandum of Understanding between Airbus and Philippine Airlines for an order of new planes. This includes size A350-900s along with six other purchase options. The Memorandum of Understanding was announced during the Singapore Airshow by Fabrice Bregier, the President and CEO of Airbus along with Jaime J. Bautista, the President and COO of Philippine Airlines.

There will be three different types of premium layouts for the A350-900 that Philippine Airlines has configured. These three layouts will be for non-stop flights from Manila to the US west coast and New York. Not only this, but the lay out will be in flights going towards Europe as well. The aircraft will be able to travel non-stop from New York to Manila (which is around 8000 nautical miles) all year round plus having a full passenger load.

Jaime J. Bautista talks about how the A350 fulfilled their needs as a company.
“After a thorough commercial and technical evaluation, the A350 came out on top in meeting our demanding requirements.”
He also talks about the benefits of the A350.
“With the A350 we will be flying the world’s most modern airliner, bringing greatly enhanced efficiency and superior passenger comfort. The A350’s range capability has been an important factor in our decision, enabling us to offer non-stop service on all our premium long haul routes.”

The A350 XWB is considered the newest generation airline and also the latest member of the Airbus wide-body family. Airbus has over 700 firm orders for the A350 from over 40 customers worldwide. By doing so, this makes the A350 one of the most successful wide-body aircraft ever.
