LAST UPDATE : 21/06/2018



On this page we will put all updates about the two future RwandAir Airbus A330 NEOs. In June 2018, RwandAir confirmed, that they will add two A330-900, with a delivery planned, in 2019.


The 2 Airbus will be leased from ALC, they were planend to be used by Air Berlin, which ceased operations, in late 2017.





Building on the proven success of its popular twin-aisle, twin-engine, widebody A330 Family, Airbus launched the A330neo jetliner – comprising the A330-800neo and A330-900neo – in July 2014, with the first flight of the A330-900neo occurring in October 2017.
The A330neo Family delivers significant efficiency improvements while also launching the Airspace by Airbus cabin, which offers the newest and most advanced in-flight experience.
Incorporating the latest-generation Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, along with aerodynamic improvements – including new composite Sharklet wingtip devices that provide 3.7 metres of increased wing span – as well as increased lift and reduced drag, the A330neo is a more efficient aircraft that will generate savings through reduced fuel burn.
The longer-fuselage A330-900neo version can accommodate 287 seats in a typical three-class layout or up to 440 for high-density configurations, and can provide a range of 6,550 nautical miles.
Airbus has developed a fast-paced 42-month programme from launch to the first A330-900neo delivery, scheduled for mid-2018.
