Airbus’ A330neo is joining the A350 XWB in its distinctive cockpit windscreen design.

“The A330neo complement the A350 XWB in the new Airbus Long-Range family, so it was only natural that the A330neo should  have the same cockpit shades design than its larger sibling” said Eric Zanin, Head of A330 programme.

The new A330neo share the latest innovations and technologies matured on the A330 and the A350 XWB with composite Sharklets, new generation engines and systems. Both complement each other in terms of capacity and range - they address different payload and range requirements and operate together seamlessly. A common type rating allows A330 pilots to qualify on the A350 XWB in only eight days and fly on both aircraft under a single license – thus offering unbeatable cost efficiencies for airlines.

Passengers on-board the A330neo and A350 XWB will equally enjoy the newest technology and comfort experience, including line-fit full connectivity, a new full LED mood lighting allowing unlimited customiza­tion of colour and intensity, as  well as 4th-generation high-definition in-flight entertainment (IFE) without compromising on Airbus’ comfort standard of 18-inch wide seats

Based on the proven reliability of the A330 Family, the A330-800neo and the A330-900neo are two new members of the Airbus Widebody Family launched in July 2014 with first deliveries scheduled to start in Q4 2017. The A330neo incorporates latest generation Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, aerodynamic enhancements and new cabin features. Benefitting from the unbeatable economics, versatility and high reliability of the A330, the A330neo reduces fuel consumption by 14% per seat, making it the most cost efficient, medium range Widebody aircraft on the market. In addition to greater fuel savings, A330neo operators will also benefit from a range increase up to 400 nautical miles and of course all the operational commonality advantages of the Airbus Family.
