Swiss Takes Delivery Of Its 10th Airbus A330-300

This Latest Delivery Completes The First Phase In The Integration Of The Advanced Long-Haul A330-300 Into The Swiss Fleet

Swiss added a tenth Airbus A330-300 twinjet to its fleet Friday when aircraft HB-JHJ performed its delivery flight from Toulouse to Zurich. The aircraft is due to enter revenue service on Sunday 23 January on a Zurich-New York flight. This latest delivery completes the first phase in the integration of the advanced long-haul A330-300 into the SWISS fleet.

Swiss has been steadily taking delivery of its new Airbus A330-300s since April 2009. The twinjets are gradually replacing the earlier A330-200s in the airline's fleet. A further five A330-300s were ordered last year. These will join the airline's long-haul fleet from 2012 onwards, raising total A330-300 numbers to 15 aircraft.

Originally ordered by Swiss back in 2007, the Airbus A330-300 consumes some 13% less fuel per passenger than its predecessor model. One key reason for this is the -300's advanced and more fuel-efficient Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines.
