Toulouse, France - The first Airbus A350-900 of Fiji Airways has been spotted out of the paint shop with full livery at the Toulouse factory of the European aircraft manufacturer.

After getting its engines installed, the aircraft will begin flight tests.

In total, Fiji Airways has two A350-900 on order with Airbus. The airline expects to take delivery of the first copy in November 2019. The second A350-900 will join the Pacific carrier's fleet in November, after one month the first delivery.

The planes were leased from Dubai-based leasing company DAE Capital. The A350-900s will complement the six previous generation Airbus A330 aircraft (five A330-200 and one A330-300) in the airline's widebody fleet.

Thanks to the commonality with the existing A330s, the new A350s will be integrated into the airline's fleet smoothly and allow Fiji Airways to expand its international network.

Fiji Airways will configure its A350-900s in a two-class layout, featuring 33 fully lie-flat seats in Business Class and 301 standard seats in Economy Class with more leg room.

Passengers traveling in both Business and Economy will benefit high-speed internet connectivity.
