SWISS takes delivery of tenth Airbus A330-300

SWISS has added a tenth Airbus A330-300 twinjet to its fleet, following its delivery flight from Toulouse to Zurich. The aircraft is due to enter revenue service on Sunday 23 January on a Zurich-New York flight. This latest delivery completes the first phase in the integration of the advanced long-haul A330-300 into the SWISS fleet. SWISS has been steadily taking delivery of its new Airbus A330-300s since April 2009 and the twinjets are gradually replacing the earlier A330-200s in the airline’s fleet. A further five A330-300s were ordered last year, which will join the carrier’s long-haul fleet from 2012 onwards. Originally ordered by SWISS back in 2007, the Airbus A330-300 consumes some 13 percent less fuel per passenger than its predecessor model.
