Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) - If you ever travel to Toulouse in France, watch the BelugaXL Airbus A330-700L, which takes the shape of a white whale.

"Airbus" tweaked "Twitter," in the shape of the huge cargo plane, and attached it with a comment, "Pisces, hello!" This new BelugaXL aircraft is showing for the first time.

BelugaXL is used to transport parts of Airbus from various manufacturing locations in Europe to the final assembly lines in Toulouse, Hamburg or Um Tianjin.


In 2014, Airbus launched a new aircraft model with modifications and similar dimensions.

"The need for the BelugaXL has come at a time of increased production and greater capacity for this fleet of five aircraft," said Stefan Jocelyn, president of Airbus International Transport.

The plane is scheduled to conduct ground tests before its first flight this year, and then enter service in 2019.
