New A330-800 rolls-out of paintshop

The newest member of the A330neo Family, the A330-800, has rolled out of the paintshop, on track for its first flight mid-2018.

The A330-800 is the new generation 250 seater from Airbus’ leading twin aisle family. With its 242-tonne Maximum Take-Off Weight (MTOW) as base variant, the A330-800 can operate routes of up to 7,500nm and with the recently launched 251-tonne MTOW variant the aircraft can operate ultra-long-range routes of up to 8,150nm. The A330-800 will leverage the A330-200 proven versatility, popularity and reasons for success offering new generation economics.

Airbus claims that airlines will benefit from 25% less fuel burn per seat compared to previous generation competitors, reduced maintenance costs and the A330’s 99.5% operational reliability.
