A321, A330 & A340
Hi Fly operates presently 11 last generation fly-by-wire aircraft: A321´s (1 unit), A330´s (5 units) and A340´s (5 units). Hi Fly is certified by the Portuguese Civil Aviation Authorities (ANAC), and in accordance with EASA Regulations and IOSA Standards, the most demanding worldwide.
The combination of low operating costs, high efficiency, flexibility and optimized performance makes the Airbus A330/A340 Family popular. Continuous improvement brings the latest technology onboard these aircrafts.
The A330 provides exceptional operational flexibility at lowest cost. It combines Airbus’ fly-by-wire technology and modern onboard systems with high aerodynamic efficiency for a highly productive aircraft. Excellent short field performance and long range capability enables the A330 to be efficiently utilized on Hi Fly fleet.
The four-engine A340 has greater range at lower cost than any other long-range widebody commercial jetliner. Its market-matched capacity and unique economics make it a pathfinder to profitability on some of the world’s longest, most demanding routes.
Utilizing the same basic fuselage and wing as Airbus’ twin-engine A330, the A340 shares similar airframe structures, components and systems. This commonality is shared across the Airbus product line of widebody aircraft through the use of fly-by-wire controls and cockpits with similar layouts.
The A340 is free of long-range operating restrictions, and is able to operate at “hot and high” airports that would be off-limits to other aircraft. These capabilities give Hi Fly’s A340 the ability to eliminate unproductive stops, open new routes and match service standards to targeted market needs on very long-haul segments.
