The first A330neo has completed its maiden flight, with a duration of 4:32 hours. The aircraft – designated MSN1819 – is due for launch operator TAP Air Portugal and is the first aircraft to be fitted with the Airspace cabin by Airbus.
For the test phase the cabin has been equipped with light flight test instrumentation to enable crew and engineers to check cabin systems such as air conditioning and crew rests. The A330neos usher in the Airspace by Airbus cabin concept, a consumer-centric cabin that is based around four pillars: Comfort, Ambience, Service and Design.
