Launched yesterday at the beginning of the airshow, the A321XLR will be available from 2023, delivering a fuel burn reduction of 30 per cent compared to previous generation competing aircraft such as the Boeing 757.

Fitted with additional fuel tanks, strengthened landing gear and revised trailing edge wing devices, the A321XLR will have the capability to fly 4,700 nautical miles.
