Taiwan's TransAsia Airways will take delivery of the first of its two Airbus A330-300 aircraft in November.

It will receive the second A330 in January 2013, the Taipei-based carrier said in a statement. Both aircraft are powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines.

The delivery is part of the airline's order of 29 aircraft that includes A321s, A321neos and ATR 72-600s. It expects to complete the aircraft deliveries by 2022.

"The delivery of the new A330-300 aircraft will further enhance our quality of service, as well as our passengers' flight experience," the carrier's chairman, Vincent Lin, said in a statement.

"They [the aircraft] will service TransAsia's international routes to provide medium-haul passengers a more comfortable journey with an advanced in-flight entertainment technology and spacious seating," he added.
