Posted 19 June 2019 · Add Comment

Australia’s Qantas Airways Limited is opting for Airbus’ new extended range A321XLR with an agreement covering 36 aircraft.



This includes the conversion of 26 existing A320neo Family orders plus a new firm order for 10 A321XLRs
 
The aircraft will allow the Qantas Group, which includes low-cost carrier Jetstar, to improve its network and fleet flexibility to better serve point-to-point markets in Australia, Asia and the South Pacific.
 
The A321XLR is the next evolutionary step from the A321LR which responds to market requirements for even more range and payload. From 2023, it will deliver an Xtra Long Range of up to 4,700nm, 15% more than the A321LR.
