Japan’s Peach Aviation Limited (Peach) has taken delivery of its first A321LR and will set to become the first operator of the type in Japan.
Offering 218 seats in a single-class layout, the aircraft will join the fleet of Tokyo and Osaka-based low cost carrier (LCC). The A321LR will enable Peach to open new routes from Japan to destinations of up to 4,000nm (7,400km).
The A321LR, a member of the A320neo Family, delivers 20 percent fuel savings and nearly 50 percent reduction in noise footprint compared to previous generations of aircraft. The A321LR is the unrivalled long-range route opener, featuring true transatlantic capability and premium wide-body comfort in a single-aisle aircraft cabin. With its new fleet, airlines will benefit from the lowest operating costs in the respective size categories, as well as the unique commonality between variants of the Airbus Family.
At the end of November 2021, the A320neo Family had received more than 7,700 firm orders from over 120 customers worldwide.[pro_ad_display_adzone id="915575"]
