These new version aircrafts are termed as wide body aircrafts with ultimate takeoff weight capacity. There is increased capacity observed in the family of these aircrafts. The newly launched aircraft models belonging to this family named as A330-300 and A330-200 have improved a lot in case of the engine, fuel tank and other aerodynamic packages.
These aircrafts are enabled with a dynamic package of improvements seen in engine and fuel tank placed at the optional centre.
