Hainan Airlines A330-300 B-8117 (msn 1677) exits the runway at Manchester on January 6, 2018. Airlines in the Asia-Pacific region operate 46% of the total in-service A330 fleet according to analysts ICF.
Ownership costs of legacy A330s are a key reason why the type has found use with low-cost long-haul operators such as Level. Here A330-202 EC-MOU (msn 1777) is pictured at Barcelona in September 2017.
Airbus has invested €150 million a year in an incremental development programme for the legacy A330.
