Hi Fly and the A380

The Aviation Club of the United Kingdom’s lunch on Wednesday 12 June at London’s Institute of Directors will feature as guest speaker Paulo Mirpuri, president and CEO of Hi Fly.

Hi Fly is a pioneering airline specialising in high quality wet lease and charter services, globally operating an all Airbus fleet, with the aim of becoming carbon neutral by 2021.  Sustainability is high on the agenda for Hi Fly.  They facilitated the world’s first single use plastic-free flight and a commitment to be single use plastic-free on all flights by the end of 2019. 

The company made headlines in February when it received the first of two new Airbus A330-990neos, becoming the first wet-lease non-scheduled operator of the aircraft. Hi Fly is the only non-scheduled operator of the Airbus A380. Its current fleet also includes two A330-200, three A340 and a single A321-200.

Mirpuri has accumulated over 28 years of experience in the aviation industry through top executive roles with several airlines.  He has also been engaged on the support side of the industry including aircraft trading, inflight catering, aircraft handling and maintenance.
