ITA Airways this week outlined its plans for route selection on it’s recent flagship aircraft, the Airbus A321neo, being the London & Paris routes.
The carrier recently took delivery of the first unit of the aircraft variant, which has caused excitement within the industry over the cabin layout.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
ITA Airways Places Airbus A321neo on London & Paris Routes…
Services between Rome and London Heathrow began using the Airbus A321neo yesterday, with the Paris route to have this aircraft over the Christmas holidays.
Such changes took place due to the geopolitical conditions in Tel Aviv, with the aircraft expected to operate on that route from Rome first.
In a statement, the airline said the following on the route choices of London & Paris for the new aircraft type:
“The A321neo, the latest Airbus aircraft type entered in the ITA Airways’ fleet, represents a novelty for the
Company, and it further solidifies the strategy of a fleet entirely composed of Airbus aircraft with 82 units in operation including the new-generation A220, A320neo, A330neo and A350.”
“For ITA Airways the A321neo is the benchmark for technology, digitization, innovation, efficiency, and made in-Italy design on the medium-haul. It features the award-winning Airspace Cabin, providing the highest levels of comfort and increased space, latest-generation seats, new ITA Airways custom interior lighting system, and XL overhead bins.”
“The cabin is configured with three separate classes: Business Class (with 12 reclining seats with full lie-flat
bed configuration), Premium Economy (with 12 seats) and Economy (with 141 seats, 12 of which are
dedicated to Comfort Economy).”
All eyes will be on how well received the Airbus A321neo will be for ITA Airways passengers from London and Paris.
