Airbus A321-213 and A321-231


The Airbus A321 is the second aircraft in the A320 series. It is about 7 metres longer than the A320 and, with a maximum takeoff mass (MTOW) of 93.5 tonnes, also about 15 tonnes heavier. The A321 can carry a maximum of 210 passengers over 5700km. Like all A320 models, the A321 has a modern glass cockpit and fly-by-wire controls.

Depending on the livery the A321 has with two different engine options: A321-213 with CFM56-5B3 (142kN) and the A321-231 with IAE V2533-A5 (140kN) engines as well as Sharklets or wing-tip fences.
