Leading US airline American Airlines has placed an order with Airbus for 85 additional Airbus A321neo single-aisle airlines bringing its total order for the type up to 219.

70 A321neos have already been delivered to the American Airlines since it received its first one in 2019. It is the worlds largest operator of the A320 family.

“The continued investment in the A321neo is a testament to the unprecedented value of the world’s most versatile and capable single aisle aircraft,” said Benoît de Saint-Exupéry, EVP Sales, Commercial Aircraft, Airbus. “For nearly two decades, American Airlines has used its A320 Family of aircraft, some of which have been produced in the U.S. in Mobile, Alabama, to grow its domestic and short-haul international network and provide an exceptional experience for its passengers and crews.”

The A321neo is the largest of the Airbus’ A320 single-aisle family which has been a global best seller. It offers unparalleled range and performance in its class thanks to its aerodynamic enhancements and next generation engine technology reducing noise by 50% and fuel savings of up to 20% compared to previous models.

Although assembled in the US, the wings and many components for the Airbus A321neo are made in the UK before shipped to the final assembly lines.
