The national airline of Algeria, Air Algérie, have signed a firm order to support its commercial development with the addition of seven widebody aircraft.
From this order Air Algérie will be able to take full advantage of the flexibility of the Airbus product range, strengthen its regional services and offer a plan for transcontinental destinations. By operating the A330neo alongside the A350-1000, Air Algérie will also benefit from 25% lower fuel burn per seat which will create operational savings and create greater flexibility from the unique commonality between members of the Airbus aircraft Family.
The A330neo and the A350 also feature the award-winning Airspace cabin, which offers passengers a high level of comfort, ambience, and design. This includes more individual space, enlarged overhead bins, a new lighting system and access to the latest in-flight entertainment and connectivity systems.
