Air France welcomes ‘Cannes’, its 11th Airbus A350.

Air France took delivery of its eleventh Airbus A350-900 on Tuesday. The aircraft rolled off the Airbus assembly line in Toulouse and landed at Paris-Charles de Gaulle, where it will operate the company’s long-haul routes.

The aircraft is named ‘Cannes’. Since 2019 and the delivery of the first Airbus A350, Air France has resumed the legendary tradition of naming its aircraft after French cities.
