Cost efficient and profitable

No comparably sized aircraft can match the A330-300’s cost-efficiency and profitability, with significantly lower total operating costs per seat than its nearest competitor. The A330-300 has the unique versatility to cover all route segments – from short-haul trips to true long-range distances of up to 6,350nm, with passengers enjoying a comfortable, quiet cabin while in the air.

As a twin-engine widebody that can carry between 250 and 440 passengers, it is flexible enough to offer a variety of seating options while consistently delivering high-quality comfort for all. Its cabin is one of the quietest in the skies, creating a calm, relaxing environment for the entire flight.

In addition, the A330-300’s designed-in flexibility allows operators to integrate Airbus’ innovative crew rest facilities without sacrificing revenue passenger seats.


Continuous improvement

Airbus relentlessly invests in the A330 further development to deliver continuous innovation for this fly-by-wire aircraft product line, resulting in lower costs and even better operability for the A330-300. 

Available enhancements include weight reductions in the airframe, introduction of modern passenger cabin features, and system improvements to engine upgrades, along with advanced navigation systems in the cockpit. The improvements also result in longer intervals between maintenance checks. 

A recent enhancement is the aircraft’s increased maximum takeoff weight capability to 242 metric tonnes.  With this improvement, the A330-300 has gained as much as 500 nautical miles of extra range, extending its reach to 6,350nm (11,750km.) with 277 passengers, with the capability to carry nearly five tonnes more payload than the previous aircraft at a maximum takeoff weight of 235 tonnes.   

In operational terms, an A330-300 with the increased takeoff weight can connect such city pairs as London to Tokyo, Frankfurt to Cape Town, Beijing to Melbourne, Kuala Lumpur to Paris, and Los Angeles to Dublin.
