Rockwell Collins' next-generation information management, communications, landing and navigation systems made their debut on the first Airbus A350 XWB (Xtra-Wide Body), delivered to Qatar Airways. This is the first of 778 A350 XWB jets that Airbus has on order.
"I congratulate Airbus on this monumental achievement, as well as the hundreds of dedicated employees at Rockwell Collins who helped get this new-generation aircraft to the customer," said Kent Statler, executive vice president and chief operating officer, Commercial Systems for Rockwell Collins. "We greatly value Airbus' confidence in Rockwell Collins to design, produce and implement our advanced systems on this state-of-the-art airliner."
