The length of the A330-200 aircraft is 58,82 meters, which is almost five meters shorter than the original A330-300.

The A330-200 aircraft development program began in November 1995, with the goal of creating competition for the American Boeing 767-300ER, as well as replacing the Airbus A300-600R aircraft. Modification A330-200 was designed and built on the basis of the aircraft A330-300. The wings, equipment and cockpit layout of these aircraft are identical. Under the wings on the pylons of the A330-200, two Rolls-Royce Trent-700 or PW-4000 turbojet engines from Pratt & Whitney are installed. Also on А330-200, General Electric CF6-80Е1 motors are operated.

Each of the installed engines has a capacity of up to 316 kN. The A330-200 also increased the size of the keel compared to the larger A330-300 and installed additional fuel tanks, which made it possible to increase the flight range compared to the older version of the aircraft. The maximum take-off weight of the aircraft reaches 275 tons.
