The first Airbus A330neo planned to be delivered to a customer has completed its first flight.
The A330-900neo wears the colours of launch customer TAP Air Portugal, and departed Airbus’s home airport of Toulouse for its 4hr 32min maiden flight on Tuesday.
Airbus says MSN1819 is the first aircraft fitted with the Airspace cabin, and is equipped with “light” flight test instrumentation to check cabin systems.
It joins two other A330neos in flight test, the first of which first flew on October 19 last year.
Delivery to TAP is planned for the northern summer, Airbus says.
