Operators of Airbus' A330neo – which is comprised of two versions, the A330-800 and A330-900 – will benefit from up to 400 nautical miles of additional range, as well as reductions in fuel burn and maintenance costs. Building on the same dimensions as Airbus' proven A330-300, the A330-900 version makes for an even more efficient and comfortable aircraft.
Building on the proven success of its popular twin-aisle, twin-engine, widebody A330 Family, Airbus launched the A330neo jetliner – comprising the A330-800 and A330-900 versions – in July 2014.
The A330neo Family delivers significant efficiency improvements while also launching the Airspace by Airbus cabin, which offers the newest and most advanced in-flight experience.
Incorporating the latest-generation Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, along with aerodynamic improvements – including new composite Sharklet wingtip devices that provide 3.7 metres of increased wing span – as well as increased lift and reduced drag, the A330neo is a more efficient aircraft that will generate savings through reduced fuel burn.
The longer-fuselage A330-900 version can accommodate 287 seats in a typical three-class layout or up to 440 for high-density configurations, and can provide a range of 7,200 nautical miles.
First flight of the A330-900, which occurred in October 2017, kicked off a comprehensive flight test campaign leading up to its Type Certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) less than one year later. The first delivery is scheduled for 2018.
The A330neo is the launch vehicle for Airbus’ new cabin philosophy, meaning its passengers will be able to enjoy this truly beautiful, inspiring and relaxing living space.
No detail has been spared when it comes to creating a comfortable environment for passengers that offers more space everywhere – with wide seats, a beautifully lit cabin and the latest generation in-flight entertainment, plus email and Wi-Fi capabilities.
Whether it’s short, medium or long-haul, everyone can simply settle in and enjoy their flight with all the comfort and technology with which they are accustomed to on the ground.
Utilising the state-of-the-art cabin developments implemented on the all-new A350 XWB and encompassing four key pillars – comfort, ambience, services and design – Airspace offers more personal space, a unique welcome area and Airbus’ signature design elements to transform the A330neo’s cabin into a true representation of luxury.
Airspace by Airbus cabins – showcased at Aircraft Interiors Expo 2016 with a full-scale A330neo cabin mock-up – will stimulate a unique and leading passenger experience
