The Air Mauritius A350 XWB is a perfect combination of innovative airline product design and intrinsic comfort of the cabin, which is the hallmark of this new aircraft.

New features leading to an Xtra flight experience, contributing to passenger comfort and significant reduction of jetlag effect

The air management systems help passengers to enjoy a more relaxing flight. Total cabin air is renewed every two to three minutes in a draft-free environment at the optimum temperature and with 20% more fresh air.

Passengers will not only feel the difference, but also see the difference with a full LED ambient lighting. The possibility to choose from 16.7 million colours allows airlines to create individual mood lighting ambiances to foster well-being for passengers through every phase of their flight. Lighting scenarios, mimicking natural sunrise and sunset help reduce the effects of jet-lag.

Lower cabin altitude (max 6,000 feet at cruise level vs 8,000 feet in aluminium fuselage aircraft)

Xtra quiet flights:

The A350 XWB offers the quietest twin-aisle cabin in the sky, with 4 times less noise energy in premium class.

With no missing windows, passengers selecting a window seat will always benefit from the outside view provided by the larger panoramic windows as well as a fully dark cabin while sleeping.

Personal space is further increased by virtually invisible seat-connect boxes and cables that run entirely under a completely flat floor. The sidewalls are nearly vertical, providing more space at shoulder level to passengers with a window seat.
