International Airlines Group (IAG) has selected the A321XLR to expand its fleet of highly efficient single aisles with a firm order made at the Paris Air Show for 14 aircraft.



Of these, eight are destined for Iberia and six for Aer Lingus.
 
IAG, the parent company of leading airlines also including British Airways, Level and Vueling, is one of Airbus’s largest customers and this agreement will take the overall order from the group to 530 aircraft. IAG airlines combined operate one of the world’s largest Airbus fleets with over 400 aircraft.
 
The aircraft will enable Aer Lingus to launch new routes beyond the US East Coast and Canada. For Iberia, this is a new aircraft type that will enable it to operate new transatlantic destinations and increase frequencies in key markets.
 
The A321XLR is the next evolutionary step from the A321LR which responds to market needs for even more range and payload,
