Alitalia has received its first new Airbus A330-200 aircraft from the Airbus facility in Toulouse, France.

The aircraft is configured in a three class layout and is the first Alitalia aircraft to feature the new premium economy Classica Plus class and a completely updated Magnifica business class.

Seating 230 passengers with 181 in economy, 21 in premium economy and 28 in business class, the aircraft will be deployed on Alitalias network of transatlantic routes. It is the first of two new A330s to be delivered to Alitalia this year.

The high efficiency and low operating costs of the A330 made it the perfect platform for the launch of our new Classica Plus, said Andrea Stolfa, Alitalias Executive Vice President Marketing, Revenue Management & Network. And with our new business class full flat seats updating the Magnifica class, our passengers will be treated to the best service in the skies, featuring a wide range of upscale Italian brands: food, wines and travel accessories.

The A330 is one of the most widely used widebody aircraft in service today. To date, Airbus has won more than 1,000 firm orders for the various versions of the aircraft. Almost 700 A330s have already been delivered and the aircraft is currently flying with over 80 operators worldwide
