The lightweight composite aircraft was due to come into service in 2013 but will now enter service in the first half of 2014.

Airbus has more than 550 orders for the A350 – which can carry 340 passengers.

Business Secretary Vince Cable was visiting Airbus last week. The firm has received a conditional offer of funding from the government’s £1.4 billion Regional Growth Fund.

Announcing the jobs, Neil Scott, head of engineering at Airbus Filton, said the company “probably” made the best wings in the world so it needed the best engineers.

“They’ll work on the next generation of the A350, on further refining the world’s latest passenger plane – the A380 – and on creating the aircraft of the future, the A320neo,” Mr Scott said.
