Tel Aviv-based Arkia Israeli Airlines, which is majority-owned by Jordache Enterprises, has taken delivery of its first A321LR, becoming the launch operator of the type.
The A321LR is the latest version of the A321 Family and allows operators the flexibility to fly long-range operations of up to 4,000nm (7,400km) and to tap into new long-haul markets, which were not previously accessible with single-aisle aircraft.
The new LR cabin configuration allows airlines to offer each passenger more space and premium products for widebody comfort.
Powered by LEAP CFM motors, Arkia’s A321LR fleet will be configured with 220 seats in a single-class layout.
Arkia Israeli Airlines received its first A321LR from Hamburg, Germany.
The A321LR and its derivative aircraft family members are the world’s best-selling single-aisle aircraft with over 6,100 orders from 100 customers since its launch in 2010.
