Airbus Considers More Range, Higher Weights For A330neo

jueves, 12 de enero de 2017

TOULOUSE—Airbus is studying another maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) increase for the Airbus A330neo that will enable the aircraft to fly several hundred miles further.

Both the A330-800 and the -900 are now offered at a 242-ton MTOW, but Airbus is looking at raising it to 245 tons or higher, according to sales chief John Leahy. That would allow for more range. The A330-900 currently has a range of 6,550 nm according to its manufacturer. The smaller A330-800 flies up to 7,500 nm. That compares to 7,355 nm for the 787-8 and 7,635nm for the 787-9.
