A330 times 50

With one of the largest A330 fleets in the world, China Eastern Airlines has consolidated its position by taking delivery of its 50th aircraft. Powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines, the Dash-200 model features a two-class cabin layout seating 30 passengers in Business Class and 203 in Economy.

China Eastern said the arrival of its 50th A330 symbolised its 30 years of partnership with Airbus. The airline began operating the aircraft in 2006 and also has a fleet of more than 200 single-aisle A320s.

China Eastern is one of mainland China’s three major carriers and the country's second-largest airline by passenger numbers. It is based at Hongqiao International Airport in Changning District, Shanghai, and is a member of the Sky Team alliance with subsidiary companies including Shanghai Airlines, China United Airlines, China Cargo Airlines, Jetstar Hong Kong and Joy Air.  www.flychinaeastern.com
