Airbus A330: 1,500 orders and counting

Airbus A330

Airbus on Friday announced that its A330 family of aircraft has surpassed the milestone of 1,500 orders.

The company said in a press release that recent orders for the widebody aircraft from Turkish Airlines and Air Lease Corp. have pushed the order total to 1,501.

The company announced last year plans to upgrade the A330 with a new engine variant to keep the line attractive to customers and keep the orders coming in for decades to come.

That upgrade could mean work for Airbus Americas Engineering in Wichita, where local engineers were integral to a similar upgrade on the A320 aircraft.
