French airline Corsair has taken delivery of its first Airbus A330-900.
The airline plans to become an all A330 operator and has ordered a total of five Airbus A330.
Two more A330-900 are expected in May and June, another in December and the fifth in June 2022.
The new aircraft has 352 seats in a three class layout, featuring the Airbus Airspace cabin. This features state-of-the-art inflight entertainment (IFE) and full Wi-Fi connectivity throughout.
Corsair, the second largest French fleet in terms of number of seats available, currently operates 5 A330s, including one 1 A330-200 and 4 A330-300.
Using the latest generation Rolls Royce Trent 7000 engines, the aircraft will fly to long haul destinations (up to 13,400 kilometres) or carry an extra ten tons of payload.
The A330neo is a new-generation aircraft and successor to the A330ceo widebody family. As well as the new engine option, the aircraft benefits from a host of innovations, including aerodynamic improvements and new wings and winglets that together contribute to 25% fuel-burn and CO2 reductions.
Thanks to the A330neo’s latest technologies, Corsair will benefit from cost-effective and eco-efficient solutions, while providing passengers with the best comfort standards in the quietest cabins in its class.
