Interior of EVA Airways Airbus A330-200.

Introduced in 1997, the Airbus A330-200 series carries significantly less passengers and cargo than a -300 series. However, due to reduced fuel burn and reduced drag as a result of a shorter fuselage and lower capacity, it can fly significantly further than the -300 series.


Airbus A330-300

Introduced in 1991, the Airbus A330-300 series is the original model of the Airbus A330. It shares the same fuselage length and carries the same amount of passengers as the Airbus A340-300.
