The A320 Family’s longest-fuselage member, the A321, offers the best seat-mile costs of any single-aisle aircraft – with passenger capacities comparable to that of a wide-body jetliner. This stretched-fuselage aircraft has an overall length of 44.51 metres, providing ample room to comfortably accommodate between 170 and 200 travellers – or up to 220 in a high-density layout.
Capable of comfortably seating anything from 170 to 200 passengers in a standard two-class cabin to 220 travellers in a more high-density layout, the A321 continues to define the meaning of single-aisle comfort.
Like every member of the A320 Family, it possesses a wider cabin than any of its competitors; allowing it to offer wider 18-inch wide seats giving passengers a more comfortable flight. It also offers a wider aisle and plenty of overhead storage space to help passengers board and disembark with minimum fuss, as well as giving cabin crew more space to work.
Benefitting from a cockpit commonality that reduces training and maintenance costs, the A321 also features Airbus’ revolutionary digital fly-by-wire control system. Pilots certified to fly the A321 can fly any member of the A320 Family and thanks to the Cross-Crew-Qualification (CCQ) pilots can transition to other Airbus aircraft via training, saving time and reducing costs. With so many advantages for pilots, crew, airlines and passengers it’s easy to see why the A321 is such an important part of this best-selling aircraft family.
