written by australianaviation.com.au | November 16, 2009

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has approved both Airbus A330-200 and -300 models for ETOPS (Extended-Range Operations for two-engined aircraft) “beyond 180 minutes”.

The new capability will be available as a customer-selectable option which extends the diversion distance potentially up to 1700 nm. This distance corresponds to a maximum ETOPS diversion time for the A330 of approximately 240 minutes at one-engine-inoperative speed under standard conditions.
