Air Belgium takes delivery of its first A-330neo airplane

The aircraft is configured with 286 seats in a three-class layout

Air Belgium, headquartered in Mont-Saint-Guibert in Belgium, has taken delivery of the first of two A-330/900 airplane, configured with 286 seats in a three-class layout.

The airline will deploy the aircraft on routes connecting Brussels to long-haul destinations. The Belgian carrier currently operates an all-Airbus widebody fleet comprising A-330/200F and A-340/300; the A-340s will be gradually replaced by the A-330neos.

The Neo is powered by Rolls-Royce’s latest-generation Trent 7000 engines and features a new wing with increased span and composite winglets for better, fuel-beating aerodynamics.

With an order book of more than 1,800 aircraft from 126 customers at the end of September 2021, the A-330 remains the widebody family aircraft preferred.
