The first A321neo, the largest member of the A320neo family, landed late last week at AEGEAN’s base at Athens International Airport.
The new Airbus A321neo is equipped with advanced Pratt & Whitney GTF™ new generation engines that will reduce CO2 emissions per passenger seat by 23% compared to the current Airbus fleet and by 53% compared to AEGEAN’s initial and new at the time Avro RJ100 aircraft 20 years ago. The new aircraft also brings a significant reduction in NOx emissions per flight and passenger flown by 50% and lowers the noise footprint by 75%, making it the most environmentally friendly and efficient aircraft type ever to join AEGEAN’s fleet.
With an increased capacity of 220 passenger seats, reduced fuel consumption, and an additional range of 1 hour of flight, the new Airbus A321neo is expected to be an added competitive advantage for Aegean, post COVID-19.
