The aircraft has been configured for 305 passengers with 42 Premium and 263 Economy Class seats and will replace previous generation aircraft in the carrier’s fleet. Air Greenland has also firmed up an agreement with Airbus Flight Hour Services (FHS) which covers component supply and maintenance services.

The A330-800 is capable of flying 8,150 nautical miles nonstop (15,094 km). At October 31, 2022, the Airbus A330 Family had received over 1,700 firm orders, 275 of which are A330neos, from 24 customers worldwide.
