Airbus will take its new A350 aircraft on a demo tour of China later this week.

Running from 25 June to 2 July, the eight-day trip will see the A350 fly to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Haikou and Chengdu, where Airbus will showcase the long-haul jet to its new and prospective Chinese customers.

So far, Airbus has taken orders for 30 A350s from Chinese airlines, including 20 from China Eastern Airlines and 10 from Air China.

But these form just a small fraction if the 800 global firm orders so far recorded by Airbus for the A350, and the company clearly believes it can gain more sales in the world’s second largest aviation market.

The A350 flying to China is one of five test aircraft, and one of only two that come equipped with a fully functional cabin featuring 42 seats in business class and 210 in economy.
