The Air France-KLM Group has just ordered 100 members of the A320neo family, amongst this also the A321neo for KLM, the flag carrier of the Netherlands. That’s why I am requesting the KLM A321neo to be added to Infinite Flight as soon as the A321neo is getting added!
The order comes as part of Air France-KLM’s move towards a more sustainable fleet build-up. The order compromises A320neos, A321neos for both KLM as well as Transavia (France), and also has an option for 60 more aircraft.
Boeing takes a loss once again and loses a major customer in the form of the member airlines of Air France KLM that have Boeing narrow-body fleets, while Airbus nets another major aircraft order this week.
The A320neo/A321neo will give KLM and Transavia the right tool to expand sustainably in the future and to reach climate-related goals that have been set. It also represents a major switch by the airlines towards Airbus, shifting all Air France KLM airlines towards an Airbus narrowbody fleet.
