A330-200 V A330-300 Operating Ratios

Thu Aug 25, 2011 9:45 am


I am trying to get an idea of the sort of cargo payload these two variants can carry, assuming they are full, over a medium to max range. I know this is a little vague but just want some idea please ?

The best source is to use the AIRPLANE CHARACTERISTICS provided by Airbus.

The A330-200 and A330-300 both max out at 56 tons of payload.

Range for an A330-200 (238t TOW) with a 50t payload is around 4600nm. With about a 30t payload range is about 6500nm. And you can fly about 7500nm with about 20t of payload.

Range for the A330-300 (235t TOW) with a 45t payload is around 3900nm and it can fly around 5500nm with a bit over 30 tons of payload.
