Airbus has completed assembly of the first
A321neo ACF (Airbus Cabin Flex) at its facilities in Hamburg,
The aircraft, powered by CFM LEAP-1A
engines, will undergo ground tests prior to its scheduled first
flight in the coming weeks.
First delivery of an A321neo ACF to a
customer is scheduled for mid-2018.
The A321neo ACF is the latest addition to the
A320 Family. By applying modifications to the fuselage,
the ACF enables more flexible cabin configurations for up to 240
Compared to the previous A321 variant, the most
visible modifications are a new rear section and a modified
passenger door configuration, where the door located forward of
the wing is removed and new overwing emergency exits in the centre
section are introduced.
The A321neo ACF is an option today and
will become standard for all A321neos around 2020.
The A321neo ACF is the base for a longer range
variant known as the A321LR. The A321LR has an increased MTOW
(Maximum Take Off Weight) of 97 tonnes and a third underfloor fuel
tank allowing airlines to increase its range to 4,000 nautical
miles for intercontinental flights.
The first delivery of an
A321LR is targeted for the fourth quarter of 2018.
