A new era for Airbus as 321XLR takes flight

Written by on June 16, 2022

Airbus’ newest member of the A320NEO family is set to disrupt the aviation market as it took flight for the first time on June 15th.  The flight, which lasted over 4 hours, has been hotly anticipated by customers who are eager to tackle the demands of a post-pandemic passenger industry.

At present, the 321XLR’s whopping 4.700nm range sets it apart as the only high-efficiency single-aisle airliner in its class.  Notable airlines that have already signed commitments for the next-generation mid-haul aircraft include American, United, JetBlue, Air Canada and Qantas.  Commercial flights are expected to begin some time in 2023 following certification from aviation authorities in the U.S. and Europe.
