Azul Linhas Aereas (Azul) has disclosed a firm order for four additional Airbus A330-900 aircraft from a purchase agreement signed in June 2023. With these aircraft, the airline will expand its fleet and international route offering.
The A330neo is Airbus’ latest wide-body aircraft. Powered by latest-generation Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, the A330-900 is capable of flying 7,200 nm / 13,300 km non-stop. At the end of November 2023, the A330 family had accumulated over 1,800 firm orders from more than 130 customers worldwide, making it one of the world’s most popular wide-body aircraft, dominating the short- and medium-haul wide-body market.
The A330neo features the award-winning Airspace cabin, which offers passengers a high level of comfort, ambience, and design. This includes more individual space, enlarged overhead bins, a new lighting system and access to the latest in-flight entertainment and connectivity systems.
Azul Linhas Aereas launched operations in 2008 and has since grown to become one of the largest airlines in Brazil by servicing more than 160 destinations within Brazil, the United States, Europe and South America. Azul received the first A330neo in 2019 and operates 12 A330-family aircraft.
