BelugaXL – Fun Facts

To support the A350 XWB ramp-up and other production rate increases, Airbus is expanding its existing A300-600ST fleet with the development and production of five new BelugaXL aircraft, derived from the company’s versatile A330 widebody product line.

The BelugaXL incorporates newly-developed elements including its lowered cockpit, cargo bay structure, and rear and tail section.
