On February 28th, the first A-330-200 will arrive directly from the Airbus Factory located at Toulouse, marking the beginning of a new stage of renewal of the fleet of wide-body aircrafts of Aerolineas Argentinas, as it has been planned previously in the Business Plan presented earlier.
The Airbus A-330-200 arrival will enter the history of the renewal of the Aerolineas Argentinas fleet as regards the wide-body aircrafts, taking into account that the last entry with these characteristics occurred in 1978 with the arrival of the Boeing 747 aircrafts. The new plane, registered as LV-FVH, will depart from the Factory located at Toulouse with an interior of the cabin specially designed according to the Aerolíneas image and needs and will have a configuration of 24 seats lie-flat, for the Club Cóndor Class and 243 seats in Tourist Class.
It will count with an entertainment Panasonic eX3 system on board, the most modern in its type, with touch individual screens of high definition of 9 inches in Economic Class and 11” in Business Class, with movies, series and games On-Demand.
The interior of the cabin of the A330 is lighted by a variable system of mood lighting LED that allows it to adjust the brightness of the phase of the day.
The A330 is powered by two General Electric turbines (CF6-80E1A4/B) with a power output of 72.000 pounds of thrust and its autonomy will permit to cover the routes to Europe with this new model.
