ReleaseDate: 2013-12-13

On Nov. 22, the first A321 with sharklets introduced by Juneyao Airlines successfully reached Shanghai. It is the first airplane with sharklets and second wholly new A321 introduced within the year by Juneyao Airlines; now its aircraft fleet has 34 registered planes with an average fleet age of only 2.5 years.

This new plane will operate for the international airlines to Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Bangkok, Jeju and other destinations; it has a two-class layout of 190 seats, of which 12 leather seats are arranged in 3 rows in the first-class cabin, with 40 inches between rows, and 178 in the economy-class cabin with over 31 inches between rows; all the seats are equipped with foldable headrests and comfortable waist rests to provide service of superior quality to travelers.

In addition to the sharklets, the new plane is wholly color painted. It is told that Juneyao Airlines plans to equip all A321 introduced later with sharklets and have them color painted. With a whole fleet boasting a unique color combination of claret red and golden color, and adroit sharklets, a brand-new visual impact and experience can be experienced.

It is known that sharklet is the up-to-date element for Airbus’ plan for continued improvement of A320 series. It brings the advantages like lower fuel consumption, longer range, bigger payload and better performance, and can help the airlines improve their planes’ aerodynamic performance, effectively lower fuel demand and reduce emission.
