Azul S.A. has announced an order for five next-generation Airbus A330-900neo widebody aircraft from Avolon, an international aircraft leasing company, the company said.
With deliveries starting in late 2018, the A330neo will be deployed to further strengthen Azul´s international flights to the US and Europe, and to serve select new destinations.
Azul will be the only airline in South America and one of the first in the world to operate this type of aircraft, which will come with 298 seats, 27 more than the current A330s in high-density configuration.
The cabin interior will be divided into 34 business class seats, 108 Economy Extra seats, and 156 Economy seats. The A330neo will come with the most advanced passenger cabin today dubbed “Air Space by Airbus”, bringing together an enhanced experience for passengers and optimum performance based on comfort, ambience, service and design.
Moreover, the A330neo reduces fuel consumption by 14% per seat compared to the current A330ceo model, making it the most cost efficient, medium range widebody aircraft in the market.
Azul is the second largest airline in Brazil offering international flights, with an average of 15 daily flights to South America, the United States and Europe…Fuente: http://www.financial-news.co.uk/43636/2017/09/azul-announces-order-of-5-airbus-a330-900neo-2017092509/
