When Will Kuwait Airways Receive Its Rare Aeroplane?
Kuwait Airways has on order eight of the super rare Airbus A330-800neos. But when will they be delivered and what will they be like?
What are the details?
Back in 2018, Kuwait Airways shocked the world by ordering the Airbus A330-800neo. Shocked is the right word, as the airframe has been decidedly unpopular compared to its bigger brother, the Airbus A330-900neo.
For those who are not familiar with the two types, they have the following specifications
- The A330-800neo is designed to carry 257 passengers in three classes to a range of 8,150nmi / 15,094 km. This aircraft is weighted towards range and distance.
- The A330-900neo is bigger and can carry 287 passengers in a three-class layout to a range of 7,200nmi / 13,334 km. This aircraft is weighted towards passengers and capacity.
The A330neo series is the revamp of the classic A330-200 and A330-300 (which each of the new ones is the respective successor of the old).
