Brazil's Azul receives its first A330neo aircraft
May 15, 2019: Brazilian carrier Azul Linhas Aereas has received its first A330neo, Airbus’ new generation A330 aircraft, on lease from Avolon, a global aircraft leasing company.
The aircraft is the first of 15 A330neo ordered by Avolon.
With this delivery, it becomes the first airline from the Americas to fly the A330-900. The aircraft will be used by the airline to expand its international route network between Brazil and Europe and the United States.
The aircraft features 34 business class, 96 economy Xtra and 168 economy class seats along with the most advanced in-flight experience. Powered by the latest Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, the A330neo provides an unprecedented level of efficiency – with 25 percent lower fuel burn per seat than previous generation competitors.
“With its many new features and an Airspace cabin, the A330neo can only add to Azul’s many travel awards,” said Christian Scherer, chief commercial officer, Airbus.
“Innovation-packed, superior passenger comfort and 25 percent fuel efficiency all rolled in to one – that’s the A330neo.”
Founded in 2008, Azul serves 108 destinations across South America, the United States and Portugal.
