Airbus has announced on social media that the first new long-range 334-seat Airbus A350-1000 for Cathay Pacific Airways has started its test flights at Toulouse.

As previously reported, Cathay Pacific will commence a four-times-weekly nonstop service to Washington DC in September.

The service to Dulles International Airport, which will become the longest on the Cathay Pacific network in terms of distance at 7,085 nautical miles (8,153 miles, 13,122 kilometres), will be operated by the all-new Airbus A350-1000 aircraft.

Cathay Pacific has 20 copies on order. The first will be delivered in mid 2018.
