ITA Airways Receives First Airbus A321neo…
“ITA Airways’ A321neo, which will serve the airline’s medium haul routes, is fitted with a three class configuration including 12 Business Class full flat beds with direct aisle access, 12 Premium Economy seats in 4-abreast, and 141 Economy seats of which 12 are dedicated to Comfort Economy.”
ITA Airways’ A321neo aircraft features Airbus’ Airspace cabin design, which includes new XL overhead bins and customised interior lighting based on the latest full-LED technologies to help reduce jet lag.”
“In addition, to enhance the passenger experience, each seat is equipped with the latest generation in-flight entertainment system with individual screens and on-demand content.”
The European planemaker has received orders for over 5,500 units of the jet, with ITA Airways becoming the latest customer to reap the benefits of the jet.
In terms of savings and reductions, the aircraft offers a 50% reduction in noise, and more than 20% in fuel savings and CO2 reduction compared to previous generation single-aisle aircraft.
All eyes will be on the carrier to see how the additional deliveries of the A321neos go, and whether there is scope to expand this fleet further going into the future.
