A330neo, the latest version of the popular widebody airliner which can carry 258 passengers.
In line with the company's strategy to keep offering its customers unbeatable economics, increased operational efficiency and superior passenger comfort, the A330-800 is the latest addition to Airbus’ commercial aircraft product line. Thanks to its tailored, mid-size capacity and its excellent range versatility, the A330neo is considered the ideal aircraft to operate as part of the post-Covid-19 recovery.
The A330neo will enable the new airline to launch its long range operations with non-stop intercontinental flights to the Middle East, Europe and Asia.
The A330neo is a new-generation aircraft, building on the features of the popular A330 and using technology developed for the A350.

It burns 25% less fuel per seat than previous generation competitors and the A330neo cabin offers a unique passenger experience with more personal space and the latest generation in-flight entertainment system and connectivity.
