Airbus launched the A321XLR at the Paris Air Show and immediately secured commitments for 206 commitments and 24 options from a lessor and ten airlines. This quickly demonstrated the success of the new model, which will be deployed as a replacement for long-haul Boeing 757s by airlines worldwide.
With a range of 4,700 nautical miles, the A321XLR provides the longest range of any single-aisle aircraft currently in production with a similar number of seats as the 757-200. When compared with the 737MAX10, the A321neo, A321LR, and A321XLR provide a variety of models that replace the 757 depending on range requirements for domestic and international flights. It is outselling the MAX10 in the large category by a 4:1 margin, with these new orders nudging the ratio closer to 5:1.
