The twin-engine A330 combines some of the lowest operating costs of any aircraft ever designed with maximum flexibility for a wide range of route structures. The A330-300, which first entered service in early 1994, typically seats 335 passengers in two classes or 295 passengers in three classes and can fly up to 5,600 nm/10,400 km. It was joined in 1998 by the A330-200, which offers long range capability of up to 6,650 nm/12,300 km with ETOPS capability on the routes for which it was designed and seats 253 passengers in three classes. The twin-engine A330 is available with General Electric’s CF6-80E1, Pratt & Whitney’s PW4000 or Rolls-Royce’s Trent 700.
The tremendous operating efficiency of the A330/A340 Family is enhanced by voluminous under floor holds for generating cargo revenue, with room for 60 to 100 per cent more freight than the largest competing aircraft on the market. The unrivalled operating economics of the A330/A340 Family mean that an aircraft can even operate profitable cargo flights without a single passenger on board, as demonstrated by some airlines, which have flown regional overnight freight-only services with the A330, after a full day's passenger service. The voluminous holds can also be used for other innovative Airbus options, such as sleeper cabins with full length beds for up to 10 passengers, or a separate washroom and galley area below the Economy class cabin which creates space for more than twenty additional Economy class seats.
