Recognition similarity

  • ICAO Code: A332

    Notes: The A338 has high-span wing / new materials

  • ICAO Code: A339

    Notes: The A338 has 5m shorter fuselage

Accommodation

Flight crew of 2 and typical 220-260 passengers in three classes, max 406 in high density configuration.

Notes

The A330neo is a new generation of A330 powered by high-bypass ratio, new generation engines and designed with an advanced high-span wing vastly improving the aerodynamics. New materials have also been used across the wing including titanium pylon and composite nacelle. The variants share 99% commonality. The A330-800 retains the fuselage length of the A330-200. First delivery is expected in 2020.
