South African Airways (SAA) last week operated its first Airbus A350-900 aircraft for the first time commercially in the domestic market.

 

The aircraft departed from Johannesburg to Cape Town, operating as flight SA323, and returned as flight SA336.

The aircraft is one of four new Airbus A350-900 jets in SAA’s fleet, which is set to improve the airline’s customer offering and commercial prospects.

“We are pleased to offer our customers a superior customer experience with the commercial introduction of the new Airbus A350 aircraft, which offers the quietest cabin of any twin-aisle aircraft,” said Zuks Ramasia, SAA’s acting CEO.
