Air Algerie signs up for 5 A330s


Air Algerie has signed a contract with Airbus for the purchase of five wide body twin-engined A330-200s to renew its current wide body fleet. Delivery of the aircraft will begin in January 2005.

The transaction is eligible for financial support from European Export Credit Agencies.
In Air Algerie’s standard layout, the A330-200 will offer a three-class configuration, of up to 302 seats in a single-class layout.

The A330-200 has the most spacious cabin of any wide body jet in its category, creating a more enjoyable seating arrangement for passengers. In addition state-of-the art systems help to provide a comfortable atmosphere.
Making the most of the A330-200’s versatility, Air Algerie will operate the aircraft on its international network.
“The A330-200 is an ideal aircraft for Air Algerie”s international operations both in terms of the current need for growth and future development in an increasingly  competitive environment,” said Mohamed Tayeb Benouis, president and CEO of Air Algerie.
