A330-800

The A330-800 receives joint Type Certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), paving the way for entry into service this year.

The A330-800, part of the new-generation A330neo family, is according to Airbus, the most efficient longest range entry-level widebody and incorporates new Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, a new 3D-optimised wing and new Sharklets using lighter composite materials. Together, these advances bring a significant reduction in fuel consumption of 25 per cent compared with older generation competitor aircraft of similar size, it says.

Certified initially with a maximum take-off weight (MTOW) of 242 tonnes for a range capability of up to 7,500 nautical miles.

Operationally, the A330neo shares a common pilot type-rating with the larger A350 XWB, which facilitates minimum flight training cost and maximum pilot productivity.
