A330neo: Powering into the future

Building on the proven success of its popular widebody A330 Family, Airbus officially launched the A330neo (new engine option) jetliner – comprising the A330-800neo and A330-900neo versions – in July 2014.

These A330neo aircraft incorporate latest generation Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, along with aerodynamic improvements – including new Sharklet wingtip devices that provide 3.7 metres of increased wing span – as well as increased lift and reduced drag. The NEO also features the latest cabin innovations such as full-LED mood lighting and Wifi connectivity.

As a result of these upgrades, the A330neo delivers fuel savings of 14 per cent per seat compared to in-production A330s, while also providing even quieter operations, a range increase of approximately 400 miles, additional payload capability, decreased maintenance costs and superior passenger comfort. 

The A330-800neo retains the current-production A330-200’s fuselage length, while the A330-900neo uses the A330-300’s longer fuselage. Through innovative uses of cabin space, both NEO versions will offer extra seats – all while maintaining the spacious Airbus modern comfort standard of 18-inch wide seats in economy class.

Offering a range of 7,500 nautical miles, the A330-800neo will typically seat 257 passengers in three classes of service, with capacity for up to 406 travellers in a high-density configuration. 

The longer-fuselage A330-900neo version will accommodate 287 seats in a typical three-class layout or up to 440 for high-density configurations, while providing a range of 6,550 nautical miles. 

Taking lessons learned from the company’s single-aisle NEO programme, Airbus has developed a fast-paced 42-month programme from launch to first A330neo delivery, which is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2017.

Market coverage

Designed for the future, the A330-800neo and A330-900neo jetliners are the most cost efficient, medium-range widebody aircraft offered on the market. These NEO variants build on the proven economics, versatility and high reliability Airbus’ popular and multi-talented A330 product line that cover all market segments from commercial passenger and freight transportation to VVIP and military roles. On average, an A330 Family aircraft takes off or lands every 20 seconds somewhere around the world, with over 1,100 of these jetliners flying for a global operator base.

Family values

The A330neo is the latest evolution to Airbus’ market-leading Widebody Family – which includes A330, A350 XWB and A380 jetliners – and uniquely spans the 250 to over 500 seats segment. Drawing on the full Airbus “family” concept, the A330neo will share the same pilot type rating as current-production A330 aircraft, a common type rating with the A350 XWB and 95 per cent spares commonality with A330ceo aircraft.
