Corsair has taken delivery of its first A330-900, on lease from Avolon.
By selecting a total of five A330neos, the French airline is executing its strategy to become an all-A330 operator.
The aircraft features 352 seats in a three-class layout, providing all the comfort and amenities of Airbus’ leading ‘Airspace’ cabin, including state-of-the-art passenger in-flight entertainment and full Wi-Fi connectivity throughout the cabin.
The A330neo is powered by Rolls-Royce’s latest-generation Trent 7000 engines.
The Corsair aircraft will also be the first A330neo to feature an increased maximum take-off weight of 251 tonnes.
This capability will allow the airline to fly long-haul destinations up to 13,400 kilometres or benefit from ten tons more payload on board.
The A330neo is a new-generation aircraft and successor to the popular A330ceo widebody family.
