QR A321neo order

QATAR Airways chief Akbar Al Baker has inked a new contract with Airbus to upsize a previous order for 50 A320neo aircraft for the larger A321neo ACF (Airbus Cabin Flex configuration), valued at US$6.35b at list prices.

The A321neo has a capacity of up to 240 passengers and currently offers a 15% reduction in fuel consumption.

It also introduces new door and fuselage changes enabling airlines to make better use of the cabin space and allows for greater fuel capacity for up to 4,000 nautical mile transatlantic range.

MEANWHILE, QR confirmed yesterday it expects to “soon” welcome its first of 37 Airbus A350-1000 into its fleet as global launch customer.
