South African Airways (SAA), has taken delivery of its first of five new leased Airbus A330-300s, becoming Airbus’s first Southern African operator of the aircraft type.

SAA’s A330-300s are configured in a two-class cabin layout with 46 seats in business class and 203 in economy class seats.

Airbus said the aircraft will introduce “new levels of onboard comfort, including connectivity for SAA’s passengers and enhanced operating efficiencies for the airline.”

The A330-300 has a 242-tonne maximum takeoff weight and can cover distances of up to 6,350 nautical miles in flights up to 15 hours in duration, according to Airbus. This payload/range capability allows the aircraft to be deployed across SAA’s long-haul, intra-Africa and peak domestic routes.
