Airbus A350 Launches Maiden Voyage

Europe's newest passenger jet, the Airbus A350, has successfully begun its maiden voyage.

The jet's first flight Friday from the French city of Toulouse was manned by a crew of six and is expected to last four hours.

The jet is seen as a milestone for Airbus as it battles against Boeing's 787 Dreamliner for sales of a new generation of lightweight carbon-composite jets designed to save fuel and open new long-distance routes.

The long-awaited flight comes three days ahead of the Paris Airshow.
