Meanwhile, Fiji Airways and Airbus concluded the display of the airline’s brand new A350-900 XWB aircraft at the Dubai Air Show. The aircraft was on display for two days at the event.

The spokesperson says hundreds of Dubai Air Show guests accessed the aircraft over the two days. These included senior personnel from many other airlines, all of whom were impressed by the Business and Economy Class cabins.
