Virgin Atlantic unveils new Airbus A330neo interiors

Wednesday, Jul 13, 2022 0

Virgin Atlantic has revealed its highly anticipated Airbus A330neo.

The airline’s Upper Class cabin offers brand new seats and the Retreat Suite, the most spacious suite in Virgin Atlantic’s history.

Customers in Premium and Upper Class can take advantage of in-seat wireless charging, whilst customers in every cabin enjoy a greater number of USB connections, and Bluetooth enabled entertainment systems.

In 2019, Virgin Atlantic announced a firm order for up to 16 Airbus A330neos.

The A330-900 neos are designed to be 11% more fuel and carbon efficient.

Virgin Atlantic’s A330neo is expected to take off to Boston on its first customer flight in early October.

Tickets will go on sale later this month.

In addition to The Retreat Suite, the A330neo will offer 30 brand new Upper Class suites.

The fully forward-facing suite offers more space alongside a fully closing door with a ‘do not disturb’ feature.

It has passenger-controlled mood lighting and 17.3” touchscreen TV.

The airline’s social space, The Loft, remains a focal point of the cabin design.

In an evolution of design from the Airbus A350, it consists of space for eight people, with four comfortable seats.

Customers can also connect Bluetooth headphones to the dual panoramic 27” touchscreens or utilise the wireless charging facilities for their devices.

The new Economy cabin features the largest ever economy screen at 13.3”, with Bluetooth audio.

Customers have the choice between 28 Economy Delight seats, which offer an increased 34” seat pitch, or 156 Economy Classic seats with a 31” pitch.

Corneel Koster, Chief Customer and Operating Officer at Virgin Atlantic, said:” We’re proud to show the evolution of our customer experience, with each of our customers receiving a premium experience regardless of the cabin.

“The A330neo plays a significant role in our multi-billion dollar fleet transformation.”
