Default Jetstar to operate Airbus A321neoLR

Jetstar to operate Airbus A321neoLR

Qantas has announced it has restructured its Airbus A320neo order to include 18 long-range A321neoLRs which will join the Jetstar fleet from mid-2020.

The 18 A321neoLRs will be the first aircraft to be delivered from the Qantas Group’s longstanding order for 99 A320neo family aircraft.

Qantas said the A321neoLR would be able to operate Jetstar’s Melbourne and Sydney to Bali routes, freeing up Boeing 787-8s to be redeployed to other destinations in China, Thailand and Vietnam, as well as Honolulu in the United States.

“All 18 A321LR NEOs are expected to be delivered by the end of 2022 to replace Jetstar’s oldest A320s for use on domestic and international routes, and will each deliver a fuel burn improvement of around 15 per cent,” Qantas said on Thursday.

Previously the Qantas order of 99 Airbus A320neo (new engine option) family aircraft was structured to comprise 54 A320neo and 45 of the larger A321neo, with deliveries scheduled to begin in 2019.

Instead Qantas now says the order “retains flexibility with the sequencing of the rest of its A320neo order, which is approximately an even split of 232-seat A321LR neos and 186-seat A320neos.”

Qantas placed its original order the A320neo series in October 2011, while the CFM LEAP-1A engine was selected for the aircraft in 2012.

The 321neoLR is an absolute weapon, and will open several previously untenable city pairs. PER-SGN? TSV-SIN?

I have just seen an alteration to the QF order for 320 and 321 neo's. It has converted 9 more 320's to 321's.
The order is now 54 x 321neo and 45 x 320 neo.

JQ first A321LR neo has emerged from the paint hanger in Hamburg Finkenwerder (XFW) with a revised livery.

I can’t seem to edit my previous post, but this might be a Jetstar Japan A321neo with the number 26 on the nose gear door instead of letters.

You are correct 10067 is for Jetstar Japan and 9540 is for Jetstar. Just checked them on Plane Spotters fleet lists.
