“SAUDIA” RECEIVES FIRST AIRBUS 330 “REGIONAL” IN TOULOUSE
On Thursday, 15/11/1437 H corresponding to 08/18/2016 AD it’s the first delivery ceremony for the Airbus A330 Regional. Saudia is the first operator in the world for this type
The A330 Regional, the lower-weight variant (with a MTOW of around 200 tonnes) will carry up to 400 passengers on shorter haul missions (up to 2,700 nautical miles) resulting in significant unit costs savings. The reduction in fuel burn per seat, landing and navigation charges and maintenance costs thanks to these innovations will result in an overall cost per seat reduction by up to 26 per cent compared with the today’s long-range A330-300 variants. Saudi Arabian Airlines became the A330-300 Regional launch customer with a 20-aircraft order announced in June 2015.
