Description of AIRBUS A330

About the Airbus A330

The Airbus A330 is a spacious and versatile aircraft, perfect for group charters. Several aircraft have been configured for business aviation and VIP flights based on the ACJ 330-200. This type of aircraft is suited to a wide range of uses and its 45-metre cabin size allows for private charters at a very competitive cost compared to commercial flights. Popular with companies for seminars or sports fan clubs, for example, the A330 can also be used for official missions (ministries, delegations, etc.).

 

The history of the A330

To understand the history of the A330, we must go back to the origins of Airbus. Founded in 1970, the aircraft manufacturer immediately developed a medium-haul, wide-body airliner. The idea was to compete with Boeing and its B747. In 1972, the A300 family was born, from which the A330 later emerged, as a result of Airbus’ desire to develop aircraft with greater capacity and longer operating distances.

The A330 development program, combined with the A340 long-haul development program to reduce costs, is based on the A310 model. It is based on the A310 model, which has a larger wing. The project is to offer a completely new aircraft with a range of over 10,000 km. For the A330/340 aircraft, Airbus used the A320 avionics, a real technological feat at the time.

Commercial features of AIRBUS A330

The Airbus A330 has a capacity of up to 335 passengers, with two-class seating. With three-class seating, the number of passengers is reduced to 280. One advantage of the A330 is that the interior of the cabin is completely modular. Indeed, the space between the seats can be modified as well as the number of seats and the location of the different facilities (toilets, kitchen, etc.).
