The A330/A340 Family concept is unique: one basic airframe is available in six different configurations, powered by two or four engines.
The twin jet A330 combines the lowest operating costs of any aircraft ever build with maximum flexibility for use on a broad spectrum of routes. The A330-300 provides place for 335 passengers in a 2 class configuration. In the A330, the efficient power plant technology and the latest construction methods are combined to reduce costs by means of a low fuel consumption and a computerized maintenance. The two powerfull General Electric CFG-80E1 engines are each rated at 67000 lbs, the cruising speed is 870 km/h, the service ceiling is 12500 m and the range approximately 10400 km. Economy has been written large onto this Airbus, giving the A330 almost a 100% greater cargo capacity than the L-1011 Tristar and about 30% lower fuel consumption per passenger seat. Due to it's low noise emissions the A330 is also known as the "Whispering Giant".
The four-engine A340 plane provides versatility on the most demanding long-range and ultra-long-range flights.
