Hi Fly chosen for Around The World trip
25 February 2016
Hi Fly was the chosen airline by the touristic operator Safrans du Monde to carry the flights for its “Around the World” trip, which will take place at the end of 2016.
The touristic operator, specialized in luxury travel, chose an Airbus A340-500 from Hi Fly, configured with two classes and a leisure area with onboard bar. The business class offers 36 seats with reclining chairs which are convertible into beds. The second class comprises chairs with comfortable 86 cm spacing between rows, more generous than in most conventional economic classes.
The departure is set for 19th November at Le Bourget Airport in Paris, and the passengers will make 10 stops during the 22-day trip: Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), Lima (Peru), Easter Island (Chile), Papeete (French Polynesia), Auckland (New Zealand), Cairns (Australia), Hanoi (Vietnam), Mandalay (Burma), Agra (India) and Amman (Jordan).
Safrans du Monde is a luxury tour operator based in Paris, France, which has been thriving in the exclusive market of the around the world trips.
