The layout of the shortest A330neo

According to Airbus, Kuwait Airways’ A330neo will accommodate 235 passengers in total. Looking at each cabin, economy class will have 203 seats while business class will feature 32 fully-flat beds.

With these numbers and a 1-2-1 configuration in business class, we can see that this premium cabin will offer eight rows of seating.

“The A330neo is the right aircraft for Kuwait Airways in these challenging times. This unique product is spot-on with Kuwait Airways’ ambition to expand its network in the most efficient and versatile way. With its Airspace best-in-class cabin comfort the aircraft will quickly become a passengers’ favourite.” -Christian Scherer, Airbus Chief Commercial Officer
