Wet-lease specialist Hi Fly welcomes its first A330-900

Toulouse, France - On September 3rd, the Portuguese charter operator and wet-lease specialist Hi Fly has taken delivery of a brand-new Airbus A330neo.

The aircraft has been leased from the American lessor Air Lease Corporation (ALC). Hi Fly's A330neo is configured to accommodate up to 371 passengers in a two-class layout -18 in Business Class and 353 in Economy.

Like other planes in the fleet, the Portuguese operator will use its Airbus A330neo in worldwide charter operations.

Thanks to its new generation Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines and increased wing span with A350XWB-inspired winglets, the A330neo consumes 25% less kerosene compared to its predecessor A330-300.

Hi Fly operates an all-Airbus fleet of 20 aircraft - four A320, 15 A330 / A340 family aircraft and one A380.

The carrier wet-leases its planes for short notice airline operations, including crew, maintenance, and third-party insurance.
