The A321LR is the latest version of the A321 Family and allows operators the flexibility to fly Long Range (LR) operations of up to 4,000nm (7,400km) and to tap into new long haul markets, which were not previously accessible with single aisle aircraft.

The new LR cabin configuration allows airlines to offer each passenger more space and premium products for widebody comfort.

Powered by Leap CFM motors, Arkia’s A321LR fleet will be configured with 220 seats in a single class layout.
