Quieter, more comfortable, less emissions and more fuel efficient – that’s the new Airbus A321 which recently took to the skies for Finnair.
The Finnish airline is the first to operate this aircraft which boasts innovative fuel-saving ‘sharklet’ wing tip devices. Despite being a single-aisle plane, the Airbus has the widest cabin of its class and offers extra space to passengers. It also boasts a seven per cent fuel efficiency per seat.
Rightfully proud of its modern fleet technology, Finnair has also placed orders for 11 Airbus A350s, due to be delivered in the second half of 2015.
“Since Finnair began flying 90 years ago, the company has prided itself on flying with the most modern aircraft available. Today is a good day for Finnair as we mark a continuation of that tradition,” explained Finnair Chief Operating Officer Ville Iho.
