HONG KONG, Jul 31 (GCTL) - Hong Kong is helping test the world's newest passenger plane as Airbus' A350 arrives for a series of trial flights, the final step before the aircraft can be certified and delivered later this year.

Cathay Pacific Airways, with 46 orders for the medium-sized wide-body jets, is the model's second-biggest customer in Asia after Singapore Airlines with 70.

This was partly why Hong Kong and Singapore were the only two Asian cities chosen for the aircraft's global airworthiness test flights that included 14 locations, said Didier Evrard, Airbus' A350 programme chief.
