ITA Airways. The first Airbus A330-900.
A sustainable aircraft: lighter, quieter, and more efficient, it delivers 25% less fuel consumption and CO2 emissions per seat compared to previous generation aircraft
Dedicated to Gelindo Bordin, Olympic champion and first Italian gold medalist in the five-ring marathon, the Airbus A330neo is a technologically advanced and fuel-efficient aircraft. It will join the ITA Airways fleet in June to serve ITA Airways' long-haul routes and new intercontinental destinations in the current summer season.
During the first flight, the Airbus A330neo featuring ITA Airways blue livery flew in cruise to complete the preparatory cycle before its entry into operations.
The introduction of the Airbus A330neo in ITA Airways' fleet will be another important step toward sustainability. Lighter, quieter, and more efficient, the new A330neo will benefit from a 25% reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions per seat compared to previous generation aircraft.
