Airbus will deliver the first A330-800 Kuwait Airways aircraft
Kuwait Airways currently operates a fleet of 21 Airbus aircraft comprising 13 x A320ceo, 3 x A320neo and 5 x A330ceo.
This event also marks the first delivery of A330-800 aircraft by Airbus. Due to its medium-sized capacity and excellent versatility, the A330neo is considered the ideal aircraft to operate during this difficult period.
Kuwait Airways A330neo aircraft are configured in two comfortable classes: 32 seats in Business Class and 203 seats in Economy Class.
The A330-800 is based on the features of the A330 and uses the technology developed for the A350.
Powered by the latest Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines and with an A350 XWB-inspired wing, the A330neo offers an unprecedented level of efficiency with 25% less fuel used per seat than previous-generation aircraft.
Equipped with an Airspace cabin, the A330neo offers a unique passenger experience. To all this is added a lot of personal space, a state-of-the-art entertainment system, but also high-speed internet connection.
