Virgin Atlantic has signed a firm contract to buy six Airbus A330-300 long-range aircraft, and is leasing a further four from AerCap.

Virgin's A330-300s can seat up to 270 in Upper Class, Premium Economy and Economy. The aircraft will allow Virgin to offer enhanced services between the United Kingdom and the United States and the Caribbean.

"The A330s will be a great addition to our modern and fuel efficient fleet and will also add immense operational flexibility as well as offer revolutionary new cabin products. At the same time, the A330s fits with Virgin's commitment to invest in the worlds' most environmentally efficient aircraft," said Steve Ridgway, CEO Virgin Atlantic Airways.

Virgin Atlantic first became an Airbus operator in November 1993 with an A340-300. To date, Virgin operates six A340-300s and 19 A340-600 aircraft. Virgin is also a customer for six A380s.
