AirAsia first Airbus A321neo was delivered on Wednesday (November 20th) to the Malaysia based carrier. The new larger aircraft will allow AirAsia to open new routes and increase capacity in response to stronger demands in the region. The A321neo will begin operating this week from Kuala Lumpur to cities across Asia including Kuching and Kota Kinabalu.
This is the AirAsia first of 353 aircraft ordered from Airbus.
Commenting at the hand-over ceremony, AirAsia Indonesia CEO Veranita Yosephine said the A321neo is truly a remarkable aircraft incorporating the very latest technology.
“We could not be more thrilled that it will be the new backbone of our operations across the AirAsia Group. With the 25% increase capacity and 10% reduction in cost per seat, the A321neo will enable us to maintain low fares so ‘Everyone Can Fly!’.
“This new generation aircraft delivers significant capacity and cost benefits which we can pass on to our guests in the form of great value fares and it also unlocks exciting network expansion opportunities allowing us to fly the aircraft for an additional one and a half hours longer.
“This will enable us to grow and be the largest low-cost carrier in Asia”.
