Uganda Airlines has firmed up an order for two
Airbus A330-800 aircraft, the latest version of the popular A330
Uganda Airlines plans to use the A330-800,
which is fitted with the new Airspace by Airbus cabin, to build
its medium and long-haul network.
Launched in July 2014, the A330neo Family is the
new generation A330, comprising two versions: the A330-800 and
A330-900, sharing 99% commonality.
It builds on the proven
economics, versatility and reliability of the A330 Family, while reducing fuel consumption by about 25% per seat and increasing range by up to 1,500 nm
compared to the majority of A330s in operation.
The A330neo is
powered by Rolls-Royce’s latest-generation Trent 7000 engines and
features a new wing with increased span and new A350 XWB-inspired Sharklets.
The cabin provides the comfort of the new Airspace
amenities including state-of-the-art passenger in-flight
entertainment and Wi-Fi connectivity systems, amongst others.
