FARNBOROUGH — International Airlines Group’s subsidiary LEVEL has announced an additional order for two Airbus A330-200s, bringing the total count to seven of the type that the carrier is to receive.
The deal is worth around $477 million at list prices.
Deliveries are due to commence in 2019 and this is the carrier’s second A330 firm order in less than 12 months.
The aircraft will be configured in a two-class configuration offering 314 seats in total, featuring 21 in Premium Economy and 293 in Economy respectively.
LEVEL operates two A330-200s from Barcelona, with a third expected to be based there as well as one at Paris Orly where services began earlier this month.
A second A330 is expected to join the Orly base in due course.
After the deliveries are complete, Barcelona will have four aircraft based there and three based in Orly.
Both Barcelona and Paris will receive one of the new A330-200s being delivered in 2019 bringing a total of four aircraft in Barcelona and three in Paris.
The A330 family has won over 1,700 orders with 1,370 currently operating across 110 operators.
The A330 has been attractive to LEVEL due to their reliability of 99.4 percent and also being one of the most cost-efficient widebody aircraft to date.
