SAS launches two new routes from Aalborg and Gothenburg to New Jersey, starting April 2023.

Following this route expansion, residents in Aalborg and Gothenburg will be able to fly directly to New York three times weekly with SAS’ latest addition to their fleet - the Airbus A321 Long Range.

“As part of SAS’ strategy to strengthen the regional offering in Scandinavia, we are pleased to add intercontinental routes from Gothenburg and Aalborg. We see a demand from secondary cities and are delighted to connect even more parts of the world. The Airbus A321 Long Range is a slightly smaller long-distance aircraft and perfect in size for servicing the regional markets. Having a comfortable way of travelling with fewer stops to exciting cities such as New York, is something we believe will be highly valued by our travellers,” says Erik Westman, EVP & CCO, Network and Revenue management.  

Gothenburg and Aalborg with its surrounding regions offer a range of activities for leisure travellers as well as being home to many companies with international touchpoints, making the new routes relevant for both business and leisure travellers.

The new routes complement SAS' other four routes to New York and SAS will offer a total of five daily departures from Scandinavia to New York.

The flights will operate throughout the summer 2023 season and will return for the summer 2024 program.

Facts about Airbus A321 Long Range (A321LR)

The Airbus A321 Long Range is part of the latest generation of aircraft and is expected to reduce climate-impacting emissions by 15-18 percent compared to similar previous-generation aircraft. This latest addition to the fleet means travellers get access to more intercontinental routes with fewer stopovers, and shorter travel times to and from Scandinavia.

The aircraft has 22 Business, 12 Plus and 123 Go seats, meaning a total of 157 seats in a single-aisle aircraft. The seats are specially chosen for the A321LR to optimize comfort in all three travel classes. Seats in SAS Business are fully flat seat beds and there are different mood light scenarios in the cabins, as well as hi-speed WiFi. Every seat is equipped with IFE screens, PC power and/or hi-power USB. The reduced noise level inside the cabin will further enhance the travel experience on board. The A321LR is part of SAS’ ongoing fleet renewal and will reduce climate-impacting emissions compared to previous generations of similar aircraft.

Titan Airways launches third Airbus A321neoLR


Titan Airways takes delivery of third Airbus A321neoLR



The latest addition to the Titan Airways fleet, an Airbus A321neoLR, registered G-POWT, arrived at the airline's London Stansted base on Wednesday 16th November, all set for entry into revenue service in either an all-economy 220-seat configuration or an all-business 80 seat configuration.

Alastair Willson, CEO of Titan Airways said: "We are delighted to be expanding our A321LR fleet as we continue our investment in latest technology aircraft. The A321LR is the ideal replacement for our Boeing 757’s which will leave the fleet over the next 6 months. The A321LR’s provide additional range and reduce carbon emissions by around 30% compared to the B757. Passengers will benefit from in-flight connectivity and on-demand entertainment via the Wi-Fi, in a quieter cabin.

G-POWT is the third A321neoLR to enter the Titan fleet in two years, following the introduction of G-XATW and G-GBNI in 2020 and 2021 respectively.

This newest passenger aircraft is available with immediate effect for ACMI airline and full charter flight operations.

The addition of a third A321neoLR and disposal of the Boeing 757 is part of the carrier's move to an all-Airbus fleet, scheduled for completion by the end of 2023. This strategy has also seen the replacement of the old Boeing 737 classic freighters the company used to operate, with the latest generation Airbus A321 freighters.


Titan Airways lends support to young Ukrainian cancer patients


The airline recently supported teams at the Department of Health and Social Care and the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office to safely transport 21 Ukrainian children requiring cancer treatment to the UK. The flight from Rzeszow, Poland to Birmingham took place earlier this year. The children will now receive the treatment and care they need from NHS England

Titan’s small part was to donate the  Airbus A321 to carry the children, family members and the incredible accompanying NHS team, who, working with our crew, ensured the passengers could travel safely and comfortably. Titan were able to operate the flights free of charge with the support of Birmingham Airport and XLR Executive Jet Centres who also volunteered their services to the UK Government when asked by the Department for Transport (DfT), United Kingdom to support these flights.

Australian airline Jetstar has unveiled the new livery for its world-class fleet of Airbus NEOs as the airline prepares to embark on a new era of flying.

The first of Jetstar’s pipeline of 38 NEO aircraft is set to arrive in Melbourne in the coming months, with the A321LR aircraft commencing flying on some of Jetstar’s most popular domestic routes, including from Melbourne to Cairns.

Featuring a unique orange tail and underbelly, and freshly branded wingtips, the new livery uses a two coat ‘basecoat-clearcoat’ system which is longer lasting and reduces paint weight by up to 30 per cent, resulting in a fuel saving of up to 108 tonnes each year across the whole A321LR fleet and a saving of nearly 350 tonnes of CO2 emissions.

 In addition to being 15 per cent more fuel-efficient, the A321LRs feature a number of benefits that will enhance the customer experience including:

Wider seats than the existing Jetstar A320/21 fleet
Extra-large overhead bins with 40 per cent more storage space
Up to 50 per cent quieter engines
Flip-down smartphone and tablet cradles and in-seat USB power

Jetstar Group CEO Gareth Evans said the arrival of the NEO fleet was one of the most significant milestones in the airline’s 18-year history.“These modern aircraft are world-class in terms of performance, comfort and sustainability, ensuring our customers will enjoy a new range of benefits on board.

“With the NEOs arriving in our 18th birthday year, their arrival symbolises how we’ve grown to become the largest and most successful low-cost carrier in the Asia Pacific region.

“In addition to flying on our most popular domestic routes, the long-range NEOs open up new international opportunities, providing us with an opportunity to expand our international network and deliver on our promise to offer more low fares to more destinations.”

Photo Jetstar
Delivery of a further eight A321LRs will take place between August 2022 and May 2023, with all 18 aircraft expected to be delivered by mid-2024.


A further 20 A321XLR aircraft will arrive between 2024 and 2029, providing an even longer range of narrowbody flying.

 



More on the A321LR aircraft......


The longer range, more fuel-efficient, quieter Jetstar A321LR will seat 232 passengers in a single class cabin that lifts the bar on comfort for low fares travellers in Australia.

Flip-down smartphone and tablet cradles and in-seat USB power to keep personal devices charged.
Colour LED lighting that adjusts to the different stages of flight, which provides greater levels of passenger comfort and supports transition through various stages of flight.

So, what is the Airbus A321LR? The simplest explanation is that it’s the next generation of the A321 twin-engine jet that’s already popular around the world. The ‘neo’ designation stands for ‘new engine option’ – referring to the quieter, more fuel-efficient CFM LEAP engines developed for the aircraft, which reduce fuel burn by at least 15 per cent and aircraft noise by 50 per cent.

The new cabin design of the Jetstar Airbus A321neo LR plane.


Extra-large overhead bins provide 40 per cent more storage space.
The A321LR will also give an extended flying range, with the ability to fly 1,200kms further than the current A320/321 fleet.

Initially, Jetstar will deploy the A321LR on domestic routes like Melbourne to Cairns and the Gold Coast. The airline will also look at flying international routes as our international operation ramps up.

A321XLR aircraft

The A321XLR offers even more range – with a maximum flying range of up to 4,700nm, or 8700km, depending on the configuration of the aircraft. This has the potential for even more opportunities to expand our growing domestic and international network.

Featuring aerodynamic-enhancing Sharklets on the wings and fuel-efficient engines, the A321XLR aircraft has an enhanced environmental performance, including a 20 per cent lower fuel burn per seat, 5,000 tonnes less CO2 per year, and a noise footprint that is 50 per cent lower.

With the first new A321XLR aircraft set to join our fleet from mid-2024, we look forward to sharing details of the Jetstar configuration in the lead up to delivery.

Plans for the new A321neo production line in France put on hold by Airbus.

The European aerospace giant Airbus is about to halt its plans for a new French assembly line for its A321neo model just 10 weeks after the expansion programme was launched, news agency Reuters is reporting today.

It would not be a wholly unexpected move by the aircraft maker as it seeks to cut costs, investments and vast overheads as the coronavirus COVID-19 crisis deepens for airlines around the world. Whish presents a massive drop in demand for new aircraft.

Airbus first confirmed its plans for the new production line back in January,  back then the firm was struggling to keep up with the demand for new jets.  At the time,  it said it would move the jobs away from the Airbus A380 production line to the new assembly line.  

"Our plans for an A321 line in Toulouse are paused, on hold," an Airbus spokesperson told Reuters and confirmed. "When we see rates going up again, we will reconnect to the plans."

The news has not been welcomed by French unions, CGT union said, "-we think the arrival of a new A321 line in the Lagardere factory must be maintained,"

"With a great many airlines looking to either cancel or defer orders for new aircraft right now, it makes sense for Airbus to put those plans on hold - at least until the pandemic is over and the shoots of recovery are showing through again." Our aviation correspondent Jason Shaw said on Saturday.
