Lion Air's first A330neo has rolled
out of the Airbus paint shop in Toulouse, France featuring the
airline’s distinctive livery.
The aircraft will be operated on
lease from BOC Aviation.
The aircraft will now continue its
industrial process and proceed to ground and flight tests,
before the delivery to the airline in the coming weeks.
Altogether, Lion Air Group will acquire ten
A330neo aircraft, eight of which will be leased from BOC Aviation.
The aircraft will have a single-class layout seating 440
passengers and will be operated by Lion Air on selected domestic
routes, as well as charter and pilgrimage service to Saudi Arabia.
Some of the aircraft will be operated by Thai Lion on long-haul
services from Thailand.
The A330neo is powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 7000
