Azores Airlines takes delivery of its first Airbus A321LR

Azores Airlines – the Azores archipelago-based carrier – has taken delivery of its first of three A321LRs to be leased from Air Lease Corporation – becoming the latest operator of the long-range single-aisle aircraft.

The Azores Airlines’ A321LR comprises 190 seats in a two-class configuration and with this new aircraft, the Portuguese operator will continue its strategy of growth and network expansion to European destinations as well as transatlantic routes between the Azores and North America.

The A321LR is a long-range version of the bestselling A320neo Family and provides airlines with the flexibility to fly long-range operations of up to 4,000nm (7,400km) and to tap into new long-haul markets.

The A321LR will join the Azores Airlines’ Airbus fleet of five single aisle aircraft comprising three A320ceo, two A321neo in service since last year.
