This Is The First A321Neo Built At The New Airbus Facility

The first A321Neo assembled at Airbus’ newest A320 Family Final Assembly Line (FAL) in Toulouse, France, has been delivered to Turkey’s low-cost carrier Pegasus Airlines. The new facility is in the former A380 “Jean-Luc Lagardère” building. After the four-engined double-decker went out of production in 2021, the assembly line was retooled to produce the A321Neo, accounting for approximately 65 per cent of the A320 Family orderbook.

Together with the other A320 Family FALs in Hamburg (Germany), Mobile (USA) and Tianjin (China), the newest one in Toulouse will help Airbus meet its target of producing 75 A320 Family jets every month in 2026.

Pegasus Airlines, which has 68 A320Neo aircraft on order, has a fleet of 93 Airbus aeroplanes – 6 A320ceo, 46 A320neo and 41 321neo. The A321Neo, the largest derivative of the A320neo family, can fly with up to 50 per cent SAF (Sustainable Aviation Fuel). Its maker claims that over 5,600 A321Neos have been purchased by more than 100 operators globally.
