Starting on November 5, the Finnair airline will operate the Helsinki-Puerto Vallarta route using the Airbus A350 XWB, considered the “most modern aircraft in the world” for its levels of luxury and comfort.
The European aeronautical manufacturer detailed the characteristics of this aircraft, that will make its first flight to Mexico. He also noted that of the 100 units currently in operation, only 13 companies have it in their fleet, including the Finnish airline.
The experience aboard this flight will be one of the main attractions for Nordic travelers, as they will be able to enjoy an ambient LED lighting system that adapts to the time of day and location of the aircraft. In addition, the A350 XWB’s filtration system completely renews the air every 2 to 3 minutes, allowing passengers to arrive fresh at their destination.
Meanwhile, improvements in aerodynamics, design and advanced technologies generate a 25 percent reduction in fuel costs, which translates into lower carbon emissions compared to any dual-aisle, high-power aircraft.
And if we add the quieter and more efficient Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines, we can expect the plane’s landings at the Diaz Ordaz airport to attract more than one spotter every Monday.
“Puerto Vallarta is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Mexico, and it’s no wonder. Located on the Pacific coast of Banderas Bay, the city and its surrounding areas have incredible beaches and lush tropical rainforest,” says the airline on its website.
At the end of last year, the Jalisco city entered little more than four million visitors by ai , of which, 2.4 million were foreigners – Americans and Canadian, mainly – and 1.6 million of national origin.
