Germania has taken delivery of its first Airbus A321, although the aircraft has yet to receive a livery.
The Berlin-based charter carrier ordered two A321s from the manufacturer in 2010 as part of a deal that also included three A319s. The first A321 (registered D-ASTD) was handed over at the airframer’s Hamburg plant and ferried to the carrier’s base at Berlin Schönefeld airport on 12 November.
The second aircraft is due to be delivered in February, says the airline.
The twinjets are equipped with sharklets and – like Germania’s A319s – powered by CFM International CFM56 engines.
Both A321s will be deployed for charter flights by tour operator Alltours. The first aircraft was delivered in a plain white livery, but it is to be painted with the holiday company’s colour scheme over the next weeks.
Alltours plans to operate three A321s for its summer schedule, with the third being wet-leased from an undisclosed source.
