Powering into the future

Building on the proven success of the popular A330 widebody Family, Airbus officially launched 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 composite A350 XWB-style winglets and 3.7 metres of increased wing span – as well as new cabin features 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 the A330-800neo will offer up to 10 extra seats for a capacity of 252 passengers, with the A330-900neo accommodating as many as 10 additional seats and 310 travellers – all while maintaining the spacious Airbus modern comfort standard of 18-inch wide seats in economy class.

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.

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

The versatile A330 Family is a multi-talented aircraft product line that covers all market segments from commercial passenger and freight transportation to VVIP and military roles.  It has become the preferred aircraft for nearly 100 operators, including major airlines and flag carriers, charter and leisure airlines, the new segment of long-haul low-cost carriers, along with governments and in VVIP service.  Some 20 A330 airlines fly both the A330-200 and A330-300 versions, while more than 50 A320 Family operators also have chosen the A330 – benefitting from the Airbus family concept.

Family values

The A330’s ability to meet a full range of mission requirements has enabled an extension of the family with the A330-200F Freighter and the A330 Multi Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) – both which are based on the A330-200 airframe.   The A330-200F is positioned as the replacement for ageing mid-size long-haul freighters, and also offers opportunities to grow frequencies in under-served and fragmented markets at no additional cost per tonne.  The A330 MRTT meets military services’ requirements for highly-demanding in-flight refuelling and military and humanitarian airlift missions.
