A321-211


In November 1989 Airbus announced a stretched version of the A320-200, the A321 with a 44.51m long fuselage, a range of up to 5500km, and 186 to 220 passengers in a two-class layout.


The major change is the stretched fuselage, with forward and rear fuselage plugs totalling 22ft 10in (6.94 m), and strengthening of the undercarriage for higher weights, more powerful engines, a simplified and refined fuel system and larger tyres for better braking. A slightly modified wing with double slotted flaps and modifications to the flight controls allow the A321’s flying characteristics to closely resemble the A320’s. The A321 features an identical flightdeck to that on the A319 and A320.


The A321 made its maiden flight in March 1993, and revenue service operations began in early 1994.
