Airbus’ cutest new offering, one of six BelugaXL planes, is getting ready to enter service.

Nick-named the smiley whale due to its shape and charming paint job, the BelugaXL is Airbus’ next-generation transporter aircraft. The super-size transporter aircraft is designed to carry large production parts to Airbus sites across Europe. 

The first BelugaXL had its first operational flight on January 9th, the second took to the skies soon after and the third will join service in early 2021. This new BelugaXL aircraft was spotted last week leaving a hangar in Toulouse, France. This aircraft should take to the skies within the next few months to prepare it for future operations.

The remaining BelugaXLs will enter service before 2023.
