Virgin Atlantic to add 14 Airbus A330-900

Paris, France - Virgin Atlantic adds 14 Airbus Airbus A330-900s to its fleet.

The British carrier ordered eight of them directly from Airbus. The remaining six A330-900 will be delivered by the American lease company, ALC.

The A330-900s will be delivered between 2021 and 2024. Virgin did not reveal the cabin configuration that the aircraft will receive.

The Airbus A330-900s of the Virgin Atlantic are intended to replace older generation A330s in its fleet.

The British airline is in the process of a comprehensive fleet renewal. The delivery of the previously ordered twelve Airbus A350-1000 will start later this year.

With the arrival of Airbus A350-1000s, the eight Boeing 747-400 and five Airbus A340-600 will also be removed from the British carrier's fleet.
