Arkia Israeli Airlines, a Tel Aviv-based
airline which is majority owned by Jordache Enterprises, has taken
delivery of its first A321LR, becoming the launch operator of this
new single-aisle aircraft.
The A321LR is the latest version of the
A321 Family and allows operators the flexibility to
fly long-range (LR) operations of up to 4,000nm (7,400km),
tapping into new long-haul markets which were not previously
accessible with single-aisle aircraft.
Powered by LEAP CFM
motors, Arkiaís A321LR fleet will be configured with 220 seats in
a single-class layout.
Arkia Israeli Airlines received its first A321LR
from Hamburg, Germany.
