A321neo

The industry-leading quality and efficiency of Airbus’ A320 Family – of which the A321 is a member – has been further enhanced with its new engine option (NEO) jetliner versions. For the A321neo, Airbus expanded seating capacity with optimised use of cabin space, increased exit limits and a new cabin door configuration. This “Cabin-Flex” option increased the jetliner’s maximum certified capacity to 240 seats, while still providing high levels of passenger comfort.

Increased revenue potential

Airbus is offering airlines brand-new options for configuring the generous floor space offered by its A321neo, allowing more flexibility and thus increasing the total number of available seats.

These new cabin options capitalize on recent innovations in cabin monuments and seat design that enable more efficient use of cabin space without compromising passenger comfort.

New engine option

The industry-leading quality and efficiency of Airbus’ A320 Family – of which the A321 is a member – is being further enhanced with its new engine option (NEO) jetliner versions. Incorporating Airbus’ “Sharklets” and two new engine choices, the A320neo Family offers maximum benefit with minimal changes from baseline A319s, A320s and A321s – delivering per seat fuel improvements of 20 per cent, along with additional range of up to 500 nautical miles/900 km. or 2 tonnes of extra payload.  

For the A321neo – delivered to a customer for the first time in April 2017 – Airbus expanded seating capacity with optimised use of cabin space, increased exit limits and a new cabin door configuration. This “Cabin-Flex” option increased the jetliner’s maximum certified capacity to 240 seats, while still accommodating Airbus’ modern comfort standard of at least 18-inch wide seats.  

The A321LR – a new variant of Airbus’ A321neo, deliveries of which will begin in 2019 – will have the longest range of any single-aisle jetliner, able to fly routes of up to 4,000 nm. It is ideally suited to transatlantic routes, and enables airlines to tap into new long-haul markets that were not previously accessible with current single-aisle aircraft.
