The agreement for the A321XLR includes an order for 13 new planes and the upsizing of seven A321s in its existing backlog. The latest order takes the total number of A330 Family aircraft ordered by GECAS to 45 and all variants of the A320 Family to 588.
 
At the Dubai Airshow, Christian Scherer, Airbus Chief Commercial Officer said: “Having one of the world’s most respected and influential lessors invest in the A321XLR and the A330neo, speaks volumes on their global appeal, versatility and solid value as an asset. Airbus thanks GECAS on its wise investment and endorsement of the A330neo.”
 
The A330neo Family is the new generation A330, comprising two versions: the A330-800 and A330-900 sharing 99% commonality. It builds on the proven economics, versatility and reliability of the A330 Family, while reducing fuel consumption and increasing range by up to 1,500nm compared to the majority of A330s in operation.
 
The A321XLR is the longest-range single-aisle commercial jetliner ever, capable of flying routes up to 4,700nm. The enhanced range of the A321XLR enables operators to exploit new route opportunities and reduced environmental impact.
 
The A330neo is powered by Rolls-Royce’s latest-generation Trent 7000 engines and features a new wing with increased span and new A350 XWB-inspired Sharklets.
