Following their blockbuster order with Turkish Airlines for 220 aircraft, Airbus has disclosed another incremental order with Azul for four more A330neos.
This means orders for 224 jets have been firmed up and confirmed by the European planemaker in one day.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Airbus Announces Order with Azul For Four A330neos…
“Azul’s re-confirmed confidence in the A330neo underscores once again, that the A330neo’s economics and performance are making a true difference in Azul’s widebody strategy, coming out on top of the competition”.
“While Azul will leverage the full potential of Airbus’ unique commonality between its A330 and A320 Family fleets, passengers can rave about a spacious, best-in-class cabin experience – and this on every long-haul flight the airline offers on its attractive, globally growing network.”
Adding to this was the airline’s Chief Financial Officer, Alexandre Malfitani:
“We are proud to announce this order, as it confirms Azul as the airline with the most fuel- efficient fleet in the region, with over 80% of our capacity coming from next-generation aircraft.”
“With the five A330neos we currently operate and the seven we now have on order, we will standardize our international fleet, allowing us to further enhance Azul’s renowned customer experience and on-time performance,”
These aircraft will be utilized for fleet and route expansion, so all eyes will be on what other routes the Brazilian carrier intends to launch with these new jets on order, especially if it means more flights into Europe going into the future.
