Dec 16 14
AirAsia X has placed an order with Airbus for 55 A330neo aircraft. This is the single order to date for the best-selling A330 Family and reaffirms AirAsia X's position as the biggest A330 airline customer worldwide, having now ordered a total of 91 aircraft. The announcement covers the firming up of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for 50 A330neo signed during the Farnborough Air Show in July 2014, plus an additional five aircraft. Deliveries of the newly-ordered aircraft will begin in 2018. Building on the proven economics, versatility and reliability of the A330ceo, the A330neo will incorporate new generation Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, aerodynamic enhancements and new cabin features. These advances will make the aircraft the most cost-efficient in its size category, with a reduction in fuel consumption of 14% per seat, an increase in non-stop flying range of up to 400 nautical miles and the lowest possible maintenance costs.
