La Compagnie’s first A321neo makes inaugural transatlantic flight

The first single-aisle Airbus A321neo destined for La Compagnie – an exclusively business-class French airline operating scheduled transatlantic flights – will commence transatlantic services on 6 June 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.

Airbus said the 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.

With this brand new A321neo, La Compagnie becomes the latest A321neo operator. The airline has two new A321neo aircraft on order.
