On Tuesday (December 19, 2023), Airbus announced the delivery of Transavia’s first of seven Airbus A321neos on lease from Air Lease Corporation (ALC) from Airbus’ Hamburg production facility.  This is a new aircraft type for Transavia, a Dutch low-cost carrier (LCC) and part of the Air France-KLM Group.  The delivery flight to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS) will be powered by SAF.  The delivery also marks Transavia’s transition to an all-Airbus latest generation fleet.  Transavia’s new A321neo is configured with 232 seats in a single class layout, and features Airbus’ Airspace XL overhead bins.  Additionally, USB-C ports are available at every seat, and the latest lighting system will enhance the overall guest experience. 

The Airbus A321neo is the largest member of the A320neo Family, and thanks to new generation CFM LEAP-1A engines and advanced Sharklets, delivers a 50 percent smaller noise footprint and a 20 percent reduction in fuel use and CO2 emissions compared to previous generation single-aisle aircraft.  To date, the A321neo has won over 5,600 orders from more than 100 airlines worldwide. 

Based in Los Angeles, California, Air Lease Corporation (NYSE: AL) is a leading global aircraft leasing company.  The ALC team is principally involved in the purchase of commercial aircraft and leasing them to airlines worldwide with customized leasing and financing solutions.  At June 30, 2023, the company had a globally diversified customer base of 118 airlines across 63 countries.
