A330-200 / A330-300

 


 

The A330-200 is the shorter-fuselage variant of Airbus’ A330 twin-engine wide body family, and has the versatility to cover all ranges from short-haul to true long-haul, with ideal sizing for point-to-point operations. 

Its optimised 222-inch fuselage cross-section – which is shared with the other members of Airbus’ A330/A340 Family – accommodates 253 passengers in a comfortable two-class cabin layout that provides more window and aisle seats in much quieter cabins.  As a modern jetliner, the A330-200 accepts the latest in-flight entertainment, including video-on-demand, mobile telephone and e-mail via satellite.

Another advantage of the A330-200’s fuselage is its large-capacity under floor cargo holds, which accommodate industry-standard LD3 containers in side-by-side loading, as well as 96-inch pallets.

The A330-200 is well established with major carriers around the world, and has become a preferred aircraft for charter and leisure operators, as well as the growing low-cost long-haul market segment.  With Airbus commonality in cockpit and cabin systems, an increasing number of airlines that fly the single-aisle A320 Family are discovering the advantages of stepping up to the wide body A330-200 for higher-capacity, longer-range service. 

 

The A330-300 is the biggest member of Airbus' twinjet family and is closely related to the four engined long range A340 with which it shares near identical systems, airframe, flightdeck and wings, the only major difference being the twin (versus four) engine configuration.

At that time [1909] the chief engineer was almost always the chief test pilot as well. That had the fortunate result of eliminating poor engineering early in aviation.
