Lion Air to receive its first A330neo in coming weeks
The first A330neo for Lion Air Group has rolled out of the Airbus paint shop in Toulouse, France, on May 6, 2019, featuring the airline’s distinctive livery. The aircraft will be operated on lease from BOC Aviation.
Altogether, Lion Air Group will acquire 10 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 first aircraft will now continue its industrial process and proceed soon to ground and flight tests, before the delivery to the airline in the coming weeks.
