Majorca has a new airline with brand new Airbus A350.
World2fly, a start-up airline recently founded by the Spanish hotel company Iberostar, has taken delivery of the first of two A350-900s on lease from Air Lease Corporation.
The carrier will operate a pair of leased A350-900 aircraft on long-haul routes from Madrid to leisure destinations, typically Punta Cana (Dominican Republic), Cancun (Mexico) and La Habana (Cuba).
These latest A350s feature a single-class cabin layout with 432 seats. World2fly claims that passengers will enjoy more personal space, wide seats and absolute well-being on board and appreciate the latest-generation in-flight entertainment and connectivity.
The Airbus A350’s clean-sheet design features state-of-the-art aerodynamics, a carbon-fibre fuselage and wings, plus the most fuel-efficient Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines. Together, these latest technologies translate into unrivalled levels of operational efficiency and sustainability for World2fly, with a 25% reduction in fuel-burn and CO2 emissions compared to previous generation twin-aisle aircraft.
By the end of May, the A350 Family had received 915 orders from 49 customers with 425 delivered.
