The Airbus A330neo is a wide-body jet airliner developed by Airbus based on the Airbus A330ceo. It was announced in 2014.
About the -800neo
The A330-800 retains the fuselage length of the A330-200. The -800 has a range of 7500 nmi (13,900 km) with 257 passengers (406 max). As the variants share 99% commonality, developing the smaller -800 had a negligible extra cost.
The -800s first flight happened in November, 2018.

Why do we need the -800?
It has many unique liveries, such as Air Greenland and Uganda Airlines. As the devs are working on the A330neo currently, it would be nice to have this aircraft.
I think this model could come in the future if the A330-200 comes too, I think it would be a lot less work to make the -800 considering that we already have engines, wings and other things like the -900, I hope that until then it wins more operators
