PARIS (Reuters) - Airbus (AIR.PA) said on Tuesday the largest member of its A350 long-range jetliner family, the A350-1000, had received safety certification from European and U.S. regulators.

The decision paves the way for the 369-seat jetliner to be delivered to its first customer, Qatar Airways, before the end of the year, it said.
