Air New Zealand takes delivery of its first A321neo

Air New Zealand’s first A321neo – delivered by Airbus in November 2018 – accommodates 214 passengers in a comfortable single-class layout

Air New Zealand has become a new operator of the A321neo, following the delivery of its first aircraft this weekend. In total, Air New Zealand will acquire 20 A320neo Family aircraft.

Air New Zealand’s first A321neo is painted in the airline’s iconic all black livery. The aircraft is powered by Pratt & Whitney PurePower engines and accommodates 214 passengers in a comfortable single-class layout.

Selected for its outstanding operational efficiency, comfort and range, Air New Zealand’s fleet of A320neo aircraft will initially add capacity on the carrier’s trans-Tasman and Pacific Island routes and at a later stage on domestic services.

Air New Zealand is an important operator of the A320 Family, with a total of 30 A320ceo currently in service on its domestic, trans-Tasman and Pacific Islands routes.

Featuring the widest single-aisle cabin in the sky, the A320neo Family incorporates the very latest technologies, including new-generation engines and Sharklets, which together deliver 15 percent fuel savings. With more than 6,100 orders received from over 100 customers, the A320neo Family has captured nearly 60 percent share of the market.
