Aeroflot takes delivery of its 100th Airbus aircraft, an A330

Summary

Carrier benefits from Airbus’ unique fleet commonality

Aeroflot, the Russian national carrier, has taken delivery of another A330-300, which will become the 100th Airbus aircraft to enter service with the airline.
Powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines, Aeroflot’s A330-300 features a spacious and comfortable two-class cabin layout seating 296 passengers (28 in business and 268 in economy class). Aeroflot plans to deploy the aircraft on numerous routes on its medium and long-haul network.
Aeroflot was the first airline in Russia to operate the A310, with an entry into service in 1992, as well as the first to operate the A320 Family (in 2003) and the A330 Family (in  2008). Currently the airline operates a fleet of 79 A320 Family aircraft and with today’s delivery 21 A330 Family aircraft.
“We congratulate Aeroflot, a long-standing partner of Airbus, with this milestone delivery’’, said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. ‘’We are convinced that the carrier will continue to benefit from the most efficient Airbus Family fleet, while its passengers will continue to enjoy the highest level of comfort on board Airbus aircraft .”
The A330 Family, which spans 250 to 300 seats, and includes Freighter, VIP, and Military Transport/Tanker variants, has now attracted more than 1,200 orders, with around 900 aircraft flying with some 90 operators worldwide. Ever since the original version of the A330-300 entered service, the hallmark has been its very efficient operating economics. Thanks to the introduction of numerous product improvements, it still remains the most cost-efficient and capable aircraft in its class. The cabin is widely recognized as one of the quietest cabins in the sky offering a light spacious atmosphere, making flying less tiring and more pleasurable. The A330 family is achieving average dispatch reliability above 99 percent.
