Delta Air Lines' First A330-900 Takes Off

The first A330-900 widebody destined for Delta Air Lines made its inaugural test flight on Tuesday.

The twin-engine jet, one of 35 Delta has on order, is due to be delivered to the Atlanta, Georgia-based airline in the coming weeks.

The A330-900 is the larger of the two A330neo variants that Airbus launched in 2014.

Incorporating the latest-generation Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, along with aerodynamic enhancements – including new extended composite wingtips which provide 3.7 metres of increased overall wing-span, as well as increased lift and reduced drag – the A330neo is a more efficient aircraft, delivering 25% lower fuel burn than previous generation aircraft and one of the lowest seat-mile costs in its category.

The A330-900 has a range of 6,550 nautical miles in a typical three-class configuration.
