Corsair takes supply of its first Airbus A330neo

Corsair is executing its strategy to become an all-A330 operator

  • Corsair will benefit from cost-effective and eco-efficient solutions
  • The aircraft has 352 seats in a three-class arrangement
  • Corsair already operates an Airbus fleet of five A330 Family aircraft

Corsair has taken delivery of its first Avolon-leased A330-900 for the French airline’s fleet.

With the selection of a total of five Airbus A330neos, Corsair is implementing its strategy of becoming an all-A330 operator. Thanks to the latest technologies of the A330neo, Corsair benefits from cost-effective and eco-efficient solutions and offers passengers the best comfort in the quietest cabins in its class.

The aircraft has 352 seats in three classes and offers the comfort and convenience of the leading Airbus airspace cabin, including state-of-the-art passenger entertainment (IFE) and full WiFi connectivity throughout the cabin.

The A330neo is powered by the latest generation of Rolls-Royce’s Trent 7000 engines. The Corsair aircraft will also be the first A330neo to have an increased maximum take-off weight of 251 tons. With this function, the airline can fly long-haul destinations up to 13,400 km (7,200 nm) or benefit from ten tons more payload on board.

The A330neo is a new generation aircraft and the successor to the hugely popular A330ceo large-capacity family. In addition to the new engine option, the aircraft benefits from a number of innovations, including aerodynamic improvements and new wings and winglets, which together contribute to a 25% reduction in fuel consumption and CO2.

Corsair, which already operates an Airbus fleet of five A330 family aircraft, became a member of the Airbus Skywise open data platform in 2020 and thus benefited from several Skywise-based services, such as a real-time fleet performance analysis capability (monitoring of the aircraft condition ), Reliability analysis and predictive maintenance.
