Toulouse gets ITA’s First Blue Airbus A330neo

Once it is delivered in the summer, the aircraft will be used by ITA Airways to fly to Miami, New York, São Paulo, and Delhi.

At the Airbus Final Assembly Line at the European manufacturer’s headquarters in Toulouse, France, on Friday, ITA Airlines’ first Airbus A330-900 with a new blue livery and temporary registration F-WWYO was removed from the hanger. It’s anticipated that this jet will arrive in the summer.

The first Airbus A330-900 painted in ITA Airlines’ signature blue livery will soon arrive at the airline. The widebody aircraft was seen leaving the Airbus Final Assembly Line’s hangar on Friday. Gelindo Bordin, the first Italian to win the gold medal in the five-ring marathon at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, is honored by having his aircraft named in his honor.

According to information from ch-aviation, ITA Airlines anticipates receiving 17 A330neos in the future. Eight Airbus A330-200s are among the 71 aircraft in the company’s current fleet. Although ch-aviation already has the Irish registration EI-HJN listed for it as its delivery registration, the first A330-900 was seen with its German registration F-WWYO.

In a three-class layout, the aircraft is expected to have room for 291 passengers. 237 seats in economy, 24 in premium economy, and 30 in business will be available. The A330-200 it will replace has 14% more seats than that. A330neo fleet introduction, according to ITA Airlines, will be another step toward sustainability.

A 25% reduction in fuel usage and CO2 emissions per seat over earlier generations of aircraft will make the new aircraft lighter, quieter, and more effective.

This aircraft will join the company’s fleet in the summer and fly on long-haul routes as well as to brand-new international locations, according to ITA Airways.

An examination of ITA’s proposed A330neo routes

ITA Airlines has already decided to use the A330neo to fly to four long-distance locations as of June 1, which is the anticipated date of introduction.

The company’s brand-new A330neos will make their debut in Miami, as previously reported by Easy Flying. Delhi, Sao Paulo Guarulhos, and New York John F. Kennedy (JFK) are additional A330neo destinations (DEL).

In October, ITA has booked a maximum of five daily A330neo departures from Rome, with each flight going to two different destinations: Sao Paulo (flights AZ678 and AZ674), New York (flights AZ608 and AZ610), and Delhi (flight AZ608) (AZ770).

An update on the negotiations between Lufthansa and ITA Airlines

In its 2022 financial reports, ITA Airlines reportedly had a net loss of $529 million. As opposed to $97.5 million in 2021, total revenue increased to about $1.7 billion. The airline did underline that their outcomes were in line with expectations.

The Italian government announced yesterday that talks were continuing with Germany’s Lufthansa regarding the sale of a minority stake in ITA Airways. Nevertheless, the company was still in “startup status in a market that was still sluggish in the early months of the year due to the lingering COVID pandemic.”

ITA’s industrial plan has been authorized by the two businesses collectively. ITA Airlines could be acquired by Lufthansa for a 40% interest in the deal, which Reuters reports could be finalized by mid-April.
