Four new A350 freighter aircraft for KLM Group

Martinair, part of the KLM Group, has placed a firm order with Airbus for four new A350F. Martinair is the operating carrier for KLM Cargo. The four A350Fs emit over 40% less CO2 and make 50% less noise than their predecessors. The new aircraft will replace the current Boeing 747 freighters from H2/2026.


The A350F is the freighter version of the A350. It is fitted with an extra-large cargo deck. Lighter materials have been used wherever possible to keep take-off weight to a minimum. In combination with the Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-97 engines, this considerably improves performance in terms of CO₂ emissions and noise pollution.


This aircraft is suitable for carrying a range of cargos, including fresh produce, express shipments, pharmaceuticals, horses, and oversized cargo. The maximum payload of the chosen configuration is 108 t. (cj)
