Airbus delivered the first A330-900 to Air Belgium, leisure airline based in Mont-Saint-Guibert.
Equipped with the Airspace cabin, Air Belgium’s A330neo is configured to carry up to 286 passengers in three classes – 30 business class seats, 21 premium-class, and 235 economy-class seats.
All seats are equipped with in-flight entertainment system, on-board wifi and mood lighting.
Air Belgium will deploy the aircraft on routes connecting Brussels to long-haul destinations such as Mauritius, which was scheduled to start on October 15th.
The A330-900 will gradually replace the four-engine A340-300, of which the carrier owns three aircraft. In addition to them, Air Belgium also operates four A330-200s.
The second A330neo is expected to be received in late November and will enhance the airline’s winter schedule.
