In one of the most significant orders announced at Farnborough, Norwegian is to substitute 30 Airbus A321LRs for part of its commitment signed in June 2012 for 100 A320neo aircraft.
Norwegian CEO Bjorn Kjos said the new aircraft, which will feature a single-class cabin layout with about 220 seats and will be available from 2019, “fits really well with our global expansion plans and future long-haul network, both in terms of size, range and fuel efficiency”.
He added: “The A321LR is the newest narrow-body long-haul aircraft on the market and will enable us to offer our customers low prices on board brand-new aircraft to a wide range of new destinations.ʺ
Airbus says the A321LR, the latest member of the A320neo Family, will be able to fly longer routes of up to 4,000nm, the longest range of any single-aisle airliner, making it ideally suited to transatlantic routes.
Norwegian also contributed to a good week for Boeing at Farnborough by signing on for the aircraft manufacturer’s GoldCare programme for its B737 MAX fleet and expanded coverage for its B787 Dreamliners. It is the largest commercial services order in Boeing’s history.
