Airbus Secures 4 Orders For The Rare A330-800neo

December 06, 2019 / Simple Flying

Airbus has secured a surprising order for four more Airbus A330-800neos, the smaller and significantly less popular version of the A330neo series. In fact, this order represents an increase of 40% of all orders, from 10 to 14 in total. Airbus has not revealed who the buyer is for these A330neo aircraft, only that they have four more to build as soon as the mainline production of the type begins. Currently, of the 10 orders, we do know is that eight are due for the launch airline Kuwait Airways and two are for Uganda Airlines. It is likely that this new order for four more aircraft will be from an airline that has a small fleet and is looking to expand out into the A330neo space.
