Jet Airways deploys new state-of-the-art Airbus 330-300 aircraft on Delhi-Toronto sector
March 4, 2013
Jet Airways, India’s premier international airline, has deployed a brand new state-of-the-art Airbus 330-300 aircraft on the Delhi-Toronto-Delhi route, via Brussels, in view of the enhanced demand from its guests with immediate effect. The brand new Airbus 330-300 aircraft was inducted into the fleet recently and will replace the Airbus 330-200 aircraft presently being operated on this sector. In line with its philosophy of offering products that meet the specific needs of our guests, Jet Airways has chosen to deploy this state-of-the-art new aircraft to give guests a significantly enhanced and comfortable in-flight experience.
Furthermore, the new Airbus 330-330 is set to make travel in both the Economy and Première sections more comfortable. The new aircraft will now offer guests 259 seats in the Economy section, with significantly more leg room and an all new Première cabin which will feature 34 all new air cushioned seats with contemporary ‘Contour Vantage 2’ seat control features. The increased capacity of an additional 73 seats (4 in Premiere and 69 in Economy), compared to the Airbus 330-200, is a result of the stretched fuselage of the aircraft, which, at an extra 17.7 ft, allows the aircraft to retain comfort levels while offering guests a significantly quieter cabin.
Announcing the deployment of the new aircraft on the North American sector, Sudheer Raghavan, Chief Commercial Officer, Jet Airways, said, “We are happy to deploy a bigger and better, state-of-the-art aircraft with additional capacity on the popular Delhi – Brussels - Toronto sector which has seen a steady growth in traffic, be it tourist or business travelers. Not only have we continually strived to transform the in-flight experience for our guests, but have also endeavored to set industry benchmarks in comfort, safety, security and convenience. The new aircraft offers the latest in state-of-the-art cabin products like the new seat belts incorporating an air bag for guest safety. All these advanced features bear testimony to Jet Airways’ commitment to offer its guests an enriching in-flight experience, while delivering excellence in service quality through constant product innovation.”
The Première (business class) in the all new Airbus 330-300 comes with a 180 degree lie flat bed for maximum comfort and more personal space for guests. The configuration of the Première cabin allows guests to choose between 2 individual seats, adjacent to each other. The all new Vantage 2 suite controls incorporated into the new Airbus 330-300 are equipped with Passenger Control Units (PCU) to activate various features and help guests adjust to the most comfortable seating positions. Pumped air lumbar support, with a massage feature further adds to the comfort of passengers. The newly designed Premiere seats also boast individual stowage for guests, a cocktail table area on the side console, leather armrests, a robust table with simple deployment and individual in-flight entertainment through a 12.1” monitor. These seats are arranged such that the foot wells for each are under the console of the seat in front, resulting in enhanced space between each row of seats. The Première seats also feature a PC power socket and USB socket, both of which can charge various electrical items.
The Airbus 330-300 aircraft incorporates Airbus’ latest technology, which includes its digital fly-by-wire flight controls and lightweight composite structures in its airframe, adding to the operational efficiency of the aircraft. A lighter, brighter and more spacious cabin results from updated features that include smoother contours, new interior styling, state-of-the-art LED lighting and newly-designed air conditioning units adding to the comfort of the guests. Onboard mood lighting and advanced safety features like an inbuilt airbag within the seat belt in both the Première and the Economy add to guest security and safety. The Airbus 330–300 is also a more efficient aircraft in terms of operational costs and proven reliability, on long haul routes
