freshJet Launches Long-Haul Operations

GLASGOW, UK – freshJet completed it’s first ever long-haul service on 6th October 2013 when Airbus A330-300 G-FSZA operated flight FRX701 from Glasgow to Orlando in Florida, USA. The flight marks the first long-haul operation for the airline.

freshJet placed an order for two A330-343X aircraft in May of this year to begin long-haul operations from the UK, with rumoured destinations in the USA, Canada and Mexico. The popular holiday destination of Orlando was selected to be the first long-haul destination, with plans to start flights to Cancun and Vancouver in the coming months. Long-haul flights will also be offered from Manchester.

Both aircraft are configured in a two-class layout featuring Economy and Premium Economy cabins, capable of seating 335 passengers.

In addition to new long-haul service, freshJet is keen to continue to develop its European network, where it currently operates Airbus A319 and A320 aircraft, by adding a number of new destinations for the Winter 2013/2014 period.

The second A330, G-FSZB, is scheduled for delivery in late October.
