A new plane will join Japan’s Peach Aviation Limited (Peach)’s fleet of Tokyo and Osaka-based low-cost carrier. Peach has taken delivery of its first A321LR, and is set to become the first operator of the type in Japan.

With the A321LR, Peach will be able to establish new routes from Japan to destinations up to 7,400km in distance.

The A321LR, equipped with 218 seats, is part of the A320neo Family. It allows airlines to reduce carbon footprint with 20% fuel savings, and reduce noise footprint by 50% as opposed to older generations of aircraft.

The aircraft’s seats are lined up in a single file along the length of the cabin, allowing for wide-body comfort and ease of movement while eliminating the frustrations involved with jostling with a neighbouring passenger for use of the armrest.

With this new aircraft, airlines will benefit from the lowest operating costs in the respective size categories, as well as the unique commonality between variants of the Airbus Family.

Towards the end of 2021, the A320neo Family received more than 7,700 orders from over 120 customers worldwide.
