The tests validated the aircraft airframe and systems well beyond their design limits to meet all airworthiness criteria.

The A321neo with CFM engines is the fourth member of the NEO Family certified over the last 15 months, giving customers of the A320neo Family the option of two engine types; Pratt & Whitney’s Pure Power PW1100G-JM and CFM’s LEAP-1A.

“The A321neo offers operators the perfect balance between fuel efficiency, comfort and environmental performance.
