Garuda Indonesia has taken delivery of its first A330-900.
This new generation widebody aircraft powered Rolls-Royce’s latest-generation Trent 7000 engines is the first of 14 A330-900s ordered by the airline.
The airline currently operates 24 A330 Family aircraft on regional and long-haul routes. The A330-900’s increased range and enhanced economics will contribute to Garuda Indonesia’s fleet modernisation and growth plans, allowing the airline to launch non-stop services from Jakarta to key destinations in Europe.
Garuda Indonesia’s A330-900 is configured for 301 passengers in a comfortable two class lay-out with 24 Business class seats and 277 in Economy.
The A330neo Family is the new generation A330, comprising two versions: the A330-800 and A330-900. The A330neo Family aircraft shares 95 percent commonality with the previous A330.
