An Airbus A350 flight test aircraft has made a stop in Doha, Qatar on its way to next week’s Singapore Airshow.

The aircraft, MSN 3 which is painted in a hybrid Qatar Airways and Airbus scheme, made the visit as part of its entry-into-service (EIS) preparations for Qatar Airways which is the aircraft’s launch customer, and was toured by Airline CEO Akbar al Baker and Qatar government officials.

The A350 first flew last June and is scheduled to enter service in the 4th quarter this year.
