Airbus A330neo


Introduction to the Airbus A330neo

The Airbus A330neo (neo for New Engine Option) is a wide-body jet airliner developed by Airbus based on the Airbus A330 (now A330ceoCurrent Engine Option).

A new version with modern engines comparable to those developed for the Boeing 787 was called for by owners of the current A330.

It was launched on 14 July 2014 at the Farnborough Airshow, promising 14% better fuel economy per seat. It will exclusively use the larger Rolls-Royce Trent 7000. Its two versions are based on the A330-200 and -300: the -800 has a range of 8,150 nmi (15,090 km) with 257 passengers while the -900 covers 7,200 nmi (13,330 km) with 287 passengers. The -900 made its maiden flight on 19 October 2017, received its EASA type certificate on 26 September 2018, and was first delivered to TAP Air Portugal on 26 November.

The -800 made its first flight on 6 November 2018, aiming for type certification in mid-2019 and first delivery in the first half of 2020.

Sharing a 95% cockpit similarity with the A330ceo and a common type rating with the A350XWB, the A330neo is a great aircraft family for airlines looking to expand or overhaul their long-haul fleet with next-generation, high-efficiency and high-comfort aircraft.


Why choose the A330neo?

  1. The A330-900 can accommodate 287 seats in a typical three-class layout or up to 440 for high-density configurations.

  2. Incorporating the latest-generation Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, along with aerodynamic improvements including new composite Sharklet wingtip devices as well as increased lift and reduced drag, the A330neo is a more efficient aircraft family that will generate savings through reduced fuel burn.

  3. Operators of Airbus’ A330neo – which is comprised of two versions, the A330-800 and A330-900 – benefit from up to 1,500 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.

  4. 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.


My opinion on the A330-800/900

The A330 has always been a great aircraft in my point of view and I love flying this aircraft more than any other.

The A330 seamlessly fits between the short haul and long haul sections of flying and having this new aircraft on board Infinite Flight will enable people to access a lot more destinations and have a great flying experience.
