Airbus has delivered the first A350 from its widebody completion and delivery center in Tianjin (C&DC), China, taking additional steps in the expansion of its global footprint and long-term strategic partnership with China.

The A350-900 aircraft was delivered to China Eastern Airlines, the largest Airbus operator in Asia. At the end of June 2021, China Eastern Airlines operated an Airbus fleet of 413 aircraft, including 349 A320-family aircraft, 55 A330-family aircraft and nine A350 aircraft.

Located at the same site as the Airbus Tianjin A320-family final assembly line and the Airbus Tianjin delivery center, the widebody C&DC covers the aircraft completion activities, including cabin installation, aircraft painting and production flight test, as well as customer flight acceptance and aircraft delivery.
