The Rolls-Royce Trent 7000-powered A330 is configured with 371 seats in a two class layout, featuring 18 lie-flat business class seats and 353 economy class seats.
All seats are equipped with the latest generation inflight entertainment system from Zodiac, Rave IFE Generation 3. Mood lighting is also available throughout the aircraft.
Hi Fly is becoming the first A330neo wet-lease operator and plans to further expand its long haul wet-lease and charter operations worldwide.

Hi Fly provides aircraft on lease for short notice airline operations, with crew, maintenance and third-party insurance provided in a service-ready package.
