The first single-aisle A321neo destined for La Compagnie, an exclusively business-class French airline operating scheduled transatlantic flights, will commence transatlantic services on June 6 from Paris Orly Airport to Newark Liberty International Airport.
On lease from GECAS, La Compagnie’s A321neo is powered by CFM International LEAP 1A new generation engines and features a business class only cabin with 76 full flat seats. The airline says its cabin also includes a high level of connectivity onboard.
Selected for their outstanding operational efficiency, comfort and range, these new-generation single-aisle aircraft allow the French carrier to benefit from better fuel efficiency and lower operating costs on its transatlantic New York-Paris route. The airline has two A321neo aircraft on order.
La Compagnie’s A321neo will be presented on the Airbus static display at the Paris Air Show on June 18 (a trade day).
