Hi guys, it’s me again. As you can see, this is one more SAA Livery request for the Airbus A350-900.
A few weeks ago South African Airways announced that they will be leasing two brand new Airbus A350-900’s from Air Mauritius for a duration of three years, and putting them into service later in 2019 on the JNB - JFK route. And yes, both Airbus A350-900’s will be in the SAA livery.
As of now, there are no images of the SAA livery on the Airbus A350-900s, however, there are some concept designs. Nevertheless, the A350-900 is beneficial for SAA as it can carry the same amount of passengers and cargo as the Airbus A340-600 (current aircraft operating the JNB-JFK route), along with saving up to 25% on fuel. Thus, aiding SAA in its turnaround plan.
Furthermore, as the Airbus A350 is in development, I thought it was reasonable to make this request. As of right now, there is no further information on SAA and its two Airbus A350-900s. As soon as more information such as callsigns, images, and delivery dates, etc. I will update it here.
This is a concept design.
