Virgin Atlantic, a valued partner of Review Travel, has become the first UK airline to announce an order for 14 Airbus A330-900neos, with an additional six as options, reaffirming its commitment to being a cleaner and greener airline.
The new planes are designed to be 13% more fuel and carbon efficient than the A330-300 they replace, and will deliver a 50% reduction in airport noise. Over a ten year period, 2014-2024, the fuel efficiency of Virgin Atlantic’s fleet will have improved by 32 per cent.
The order, valued at $4.1billion, is a crucial step in Virgin Atlantic’s fleet transformation programme which will see 100% of the airline’s planes replaced over a ten year period. This will create one of the youngest fleets in the skies with an average age of just 5.3 years.
The new aircraft will offer all Virgin Atlantic cabins; upper class, premium and its three tiers of economy; delight, classic and light. This will allow continuous evolution of the airline’s award-winning business air travel customer proposition and we always love to hear how airlines are doing their best to improve customer experience.
