European plane maker Airbus announced that it had made 72 aircraft deliveries to 34 customers during the month of March.  These deliveries comprised of 4 A220, 60 A320 Family (57neo), 8 A350.  The firm also recorded 28 new orders for aircraft. 2021 deliveries to date: 125 to 44 customers.

The company also recently announced a delivery of an A330-900, on lease via leasing giant Avolon.  By selecting a total of five A330neos, Corsair is executing its strategy to become an all-A330 operator. Thanks to the A330neo’s latest technologies, Corsair will benefit from cost-effective and eco-efficient solutions, while providing passengers with the best comfort standards in the quietest cabins in its class.  

The aircraft features 352 seats in a three-class layout, providing all the comfort and amenities of Airbus’ leading ‘Airspace’ cabin, including state-of-the-art passenger in-flight entertainment (IFE) and full WiFi connectivity throughout the cabin.

The A330neo is powered by Rolls-Royce’s latest-generation Trent 7000 engines. The Corsair aircraft will also be the first A330neo to feature an increased maximum take-off weight of 251 tonnes. This capability will allow the airline to fly long-haul destinations up to 13,400 km (7,200nm) or benefit from ten tons more payload onboard.
