Powering into the future
The extended-fuselage member of Airbus’ A330neo product line – the A330-900neo –can accommodate 287 seats in a typical three-class layout or up to 440 for high-density configurations. 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 that will generate savings through reduced fuel burn.
Operators of Airbus' A330neo – which is comprised of two versions, the A330-800neo and A330-900neo – 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 A330-900neo 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 A330-800neo and A330-900neo – in July 2014, with the first flight of the A330-900neo occurring in October 2017. 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 A330-900neo 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 6,550 nautical miles. Airbus has developed a fast-paced 42-month programme from launch to the first A330-900neo delivery, scheduled for mid-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.
