As of 2015, the Airbus A330 category of jet aircraft is available in several versions which range in weight from 264,875 lbs to 269,975 lbs. The empty operating weight depends on the type of engines and airframe being used.
The A330-200 series Airbus is a long range, widebody aircraft, whereas the A330-300 is a large capacity, medium- to long-range airliner. These aircraft are fitted with one of three different types of engines: General Electric CF6, Pratt and Whitney PW4, or Rolls Royce Trent. By 2017, Airbus will be introducing two more A330 airliners: the A330-800neo, which stands for "new engine option," and the A330-900neo.
