Airbus A330-300

The sweeping lines of the heir to good traditions among the intercontinental airliners make us at least stiffen in astonishment so that to reveal at a single glance the real scale of the amazing Airbus A330-300 of almost 64 meters long. Sales of the aircrafts servicing long-haul passenger and charter flights owes much to the developers from the Airbus S.A.S., who ventured to improve the А330-200 for making a twin-engine giant Airbus A330-300. The new version has not only become longer by 4.6 meters. The Airbus A330-300 cabin may accommodate 42 passengers more, and the Airbus A330-300layouts allows choosing among 295 seats in the three-class (economy/business/first) or among 335 in the two-class configuration (economy/business). The Airbus A330-300 payload capacity limit is around 45 900 kilograms. The maximum all-up weight for the jetliner is 230 tonnes. Hereby the coursing speed is steadily maintained at 937 kilometers an hour, and if necessary, the Airbus A330-300 aircraft makes 990 kilometers an hour. Increased flight speed requires sacrificing the range, but at the same time the medium-haul routes ensure time saving.

What is the distance the Airbus A330-300 can cover, considering its dimensions and dead weight? Installation of the all-powerful PW4000 engines made by Pratt & Whitney, with thrust of 30800 kilograms of force, or Rolls-Royce RB211-524L Trent 700 (772), with thrust of 32 300 kilograms of force, to replace the General Electric’s TEE CF6-80Е1, with thrust of 32 700 kilograms of force, makes it possible to perform flight ranges up to 11 300 kilometers with a total load, without refueling in flight. No wonder the Airbus A330-300 has such a range capability as this version has become a well-deserved representative of the famous А330/340 family of passenger liners for transcontinental travels. The maximum flying height for the Airbus A330-300 is 12 500 meters, and the flight strip length is to be at least 2500 meters for a take-off run and 1750 meters for landing.

The 10-12 hours flight requires from passengers certain preparation. The more experienced travelers wonder about the Airbus A330 300 cabin layout to estimate the certain liner’s configuration. Several hours spent even in the most comfortable seat are enough to fatigue any person. That is why it is desirable to choose the most comfortable seats, and it is not a whim. The Airbus A330-300 is remarkable for the layout of a crew team rest room with 7 sleeper seats adjacent to the flight deck. It is important for air stewards to have a good rest, which motivates high quality servicing of the air company’s customers, without prejudice to passenger seating capacity in the cabin.

The upgraded regional Airbus A330-300 advertised by the Airbus Corporation in 2013 will be optimized to service domestic routes with highly intensive passenger traffic and population density. This version will be capable to take on board about 440 passengers, with accommodation of all of them in the economy class with standard 18-inch seats. In this case saving is ensured at the account of reduced operating weight and a correct choice of air lines for passenger traffic.

Sales of the Airbus A330-300 jetliners will appeal to big air companies capable of flight operations connecting the following city pairs: London- Tokyo, Frankfurt – Capetown, Peking – Melbourne, Peking - San Francisco, Kuala-Lumpur-Paris, Los Angeles – Dublin.
