Airbus A330 joins the South African Airways fleet

South African Airways has become the latest operator of the A330 family aircraft.  Seating 36 passengers in Business Class and 186 in Economy, the aircraft features the latest in-flight entertainment and will be used primarily on long haul routes from the airline’s bases in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

The new A330 will join South African Airlines existing Airbus fleet of 11 A319s, 14 A340-200/300s and 9 A340-600s, the airline benefiting from the manufacturer’s cockpit and operational commonality.  This allows airlines to use the same pool of pilots, cabin crews and maintenance engineers, resulting in operational flexibility and significant cost savings.

With a typical range capability of 7,250 nautical miles (for a two-class configuration), the A330-200 has the versatility to cover all ranges from regional to true long haul – ideal for point-to-point operations.  Typically from Cape Town the aircraft can make Sydney non-stop, and also New York. www.flysaa.com
