Best Answer

A330 first flew in 1992. But the concept started in the 1970s with the developement of the the A300. There was a need to "replace" the aging A300 to be more competetive with "other" aircraft manufacturers.

So they came up with new technology airframes for the A330 and A340 (a four engined version of the A330).

As a note: The A320 on the other hand was the first to incorporate the fly-by-wire technology installed on the A330 and A340.
