Another day, another airline takes delivery of its first Airbus A321neo. This time, it’s SKY Airline of Chile, who have taken their first A321neo.
SKY Airline has taken its first A321neo on lease from Air Lease Corporation, becoming the first airline in Chile to operate the A321neo.
For those looking for space, this might be an aircraft not to consider, with the aircraft able to seat up to 238 passengers in a two-class layout. SKY is the first airline in South America to operate the A321neo with a high-density cabin configuration.
The aircraft is powered by CFM Leap-1A engines.
SKY is a current Airbus customer, operating the narrow-body A320 family, with 19 Airbus A320ceo in its fleet. It is due to add another six A321neo and is an A321XLR customer.
With the A321neo entering, it should slip into service easily, with the A321neo shares a common type rating with other members of the Airbus A320 Family, which allows A320 Family pilots to fly the aircraft without additional training.
The airline is planning to use the A321neo on routes within the Latin American region as well as expanding its operations with them.
