Novair takes delivery of first A321neo

Swedish charter airline Novair has taken delivery of its first A321neo on lease from Air Lease Corporation.

The A321neo will join Novair’s existing Airbus fleet of two A320 Family aircraft.

The aircraft is equipped with comfortable 18 inch wide seats in a single class 221 passenger layout.

Powered by CFM LEAP-1A engines, the A321neo will be based in Stockholm and operate charter flights from Sweden, Denmark and Norway to destinations in southern Europe and Egypt.

The A320neo Family incorporates the very latest technologies including new generation engines and Sharklets, which together deliver at least 15 per cent fuel savings at delivery and 20 per cent by 2020 as well as 50 per cent noise reduction.

Airbus is a global leader in aeronautics, space and related services.
