At present, the aircraft is in the process of scheduling, the passengers on board will take a follow-up shift to the destination.
The aircraft involved was the Airbus A330-243E, a medium- and long-range wide-body aircraft produced by Airbus, developed at the same time as the four-engine A340, according to Wikipedia. Airbus intends to put the A330 on the ETOPS market, a standard first approved by Boeing’s Boeing 767, which is also a member of the 777.
In addition to the number of engines, the a330’s wings and fuselage are almost the same shape as the A340 to reduce the airline’s training costs. In terms of the body, the design is taken from the A300, but its cab and telex manipulation are taken from the A320.
