French airline Corsair has taken delivery Wednesday of its first A330-900, to leased from Avolon, to join its fleet.
By selecting a total of five A330neos, Corsair is executing its strategy to become an all-A330 operator.
The aircraft features 352 seats in a three-class layout, providing all the comfort and amenities of Airbus’ leading ‘Airspace’ cabin, including state-of-the-art passenger in-flight entertainment (IFE) and full WiFi connectivity throughout the cabin.
The Corsair aircraft will also be the first A330neo to feature an increased maximum take-off weight of 251 tonnes. This capability will allow the airline to fly long-haul destinations up to 13,400 km (7,200nm) or benefit from ten tons more payload on board.
