IAG has confirmed a firm order of eight of Airbus’ eco-efficient A330 Family aircraft for Iberia’s fleet following the preliminary Memorandum of Understanding signed earlier this year.

General Electric (GE CF6-80E1) engines have been selected to power the A330s.

Willie Walsh, IAG chief executive, said, “The A330s will be more cost effective and fuel efficient than the aircraft that they replace with improved environmental performance. Another advantage is they can be easily assimilated into Iberia’s existing long haul fleet, reducing the need for additional crew training and maintenance costs.”

The A330-300 has a range of up to 5,600 nm / 10,400 km with a typical 300 passenger load.

The A330 Family, which spans 200 to 400 seats for the passenger variants, also includes Freighter, VIP, and Military Transport/Tanker variants, has now attracted 1,140 orders.

IAG was created following the merger of Iberia and British Airways in January 2011.
