Japanís MLTT Issues Type Certification for Airbus A350

Japanís Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transportation, and Tourism (MLITT) has issued Type Certification for the Airbus A350 XWB, enabling Japan Airlines, the first A350 XWB customer from the country, to operate the aircraft.

 The type certification covers the aircraft powered by Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines.

Airbus Japan President, Stephane Ginoux, said, ďReceiving the A350 XWB Type Certification from the Japanís authority is a great achievement. We are very pleased that Japan Airlines will join soon other world class carriers flying the worldís most modern widebody aircraftĒ.

JAL placed an order for 31 A350 XWBs (18 A350-900s and 13 A350-1000s) in 2013. The carrierís first A350-900 is scheduled for delivery in the middle of the year.

JALís A350 XWB fleet will enter service on major domestic routes starting with its Haneda - Fukuoka route from September, replacing older-generation widebody types.

At the end of March 2019, the A350 XWB Family had received 890 firm orders from 50 customers worldwide, making it one of the most successful wide-body aircraft ever.
