Airbus has today delivered the first A321neo ACF (Airbus Cabin Flex) to Turkish Airlines.
The aircraft features a single pair of doors forward of the wing, four newly introduced over-wing exits, and repositioned doors aft of the wing, which can be deactivated. A pair of standard doors is located at the rear of the cabin.
While the original A321 had been limited to 220 passengers, the new configuration can accommodate up to 240 seats in a single-class layout, in combination with a space-saving aft galley
Airbus says that Turkish has fitted the aircraft with 20 business- and 162 economy-class seats.
The Cabin Flex layout is an option today, but is set to become standard on the A321neo “around 2020”, Airbus adds.
Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that Turkish has ordered 92 A321neo ACFs, which will be powered by Pratt & Whitney PW1100G geared turbofans.
The first aircraft was delivered from Airbus's German assembly line in Hamburg, the airframer notes.
