arm welcome for Finnair Airbus A350 at CDG on 31 October.

On Saturday, 31 October, Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport marked the European tour of a new Finnair Airbus with the traditional water salute from the airport’s firefighters, who gave it a wet welcome with their fire hoses.

The Finnair Airbus A350-900 XWB completed its first Helsinki–CDG round-trip flight this weekend. It landed in Paris at 9.40 a.m. before taking off at 10.50 a.m. for the return journey. This was also a special occasion for the new long-haul Airbus model: until then no European airline had completed a regular flight to Paris in the aircraft.

The Finnair plane is thus officially the first European A350 XWB to touch down in Paris.
