Airbus A330-200 KC-30A MRTT RAAF Model Details
The +A330-200+. is the newest member of Airbus widebody twinjet family and is a long range, shortened development of the standard A330, developed in part as a replacement for the +A300-600R+. and a competitor to the 767-300ER.
Airbus launched development of the +A330-200+. in November 1995, followed by the first customer order, for 13 from ILFC, placed in February 1996. First flight was on August 13 1997, with certification and first customer deliveries,to ILFC/Canada 3000, in April 1998.
The A330-200 is based on the A330-300 and shares near identical systems, airframe, flightdeck and wings, the only major difference being the fuselage length. Compared with the 300 the A330-200 is 10 frames shorter, and so has an overall length of 59.00m (193ft 7in), compared with 63.70m (209ft 0in) for the standard length aircraft. This allows the A330-200 to seat 256 passengers in a three class configuration, or alternatively 293 in two classes.
Because of its decreased length the A330-200 features enlarged horizontal and vertical tail services (to compensate for the loss of moment arm with the shorter fuselage). Another important change is the addition of a centre fuel tank, which increases the A330-200s fuel capacity over the 300s, and results in the 200s 11,850km (6400nm) range.
Like the A330, engine options are the GE CF6-80, Prattamp; Whitney 4000 series and the RollsRoyce Trent 700.
The A330-200 has sold quite strongly since its launch. Among the initial A330-200 customers are, apart from +ILFC+., +Canada 3000+., +Korean Air+., +Austrian+., +Air Transat+., +Emirates+., +Swissair+., S+abena+., +Monarch+., +Asiana+., +TAM+., and +Air Lanka+..
