This order will allow Air Algérie to take full advantage of the flexibility of the Airbus product  range, strengthen its regional services and offer an ambitious plan for transcontinental  destinations. By operating the A330neo alongside the A350-1000, Air Algérie will also benefit  from operational savings such as a 25 percent lower fuel burn per seat and greater flexibility  resulting from the unique commonality between members of the Airbus aircraft family.

As part of an exclusive agreement, the aircraft are powered by the Trent 7000 - the latest addition to the Rolls-Royce Trent family of engines - and Trent XWB-97s .  

After entering into service in early 2019, the Trent 7000 has flown more than one million hours, delivering exceptional reliability, sustainable performance, and proven versatility. The Airbus A350 is also exclusively powered by Rolls-Royce; the Trent XWB is the world’s most efficient large aero engine in service and its performance to date is unprecedented.They can also operate on a 50 per cent Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) blend.

The A330neo and the A350 also feature the award-winning Airspace cabin, which offers  passengers a high level of comfort, ambience, and design. This includes more individual  space, enlarged overhead bins, a new lighting system and access to the latest in-flight  entertainment and connectivity systems.

The A330-900 is capable of flying 7,200 nm / 13,334 km non-stop. By the end of April 2023, the A330 Family had 1,775 firm orders from 130 customers worldwide.
