Pegasus Airlines took delivery of its first Airbus A321neo on 11 September, equipped with a 239-seat high-density cabin layout.
The aircraft (registration TC-RBA), which is an A321-200NX version featuring the Airbus Cabin Flex (ACF) door configuration, joins the Turkish carrier’s fleet as part of its 100-strong order for A320-family aircraft placed in 2012.
The aircraft is powered by CFM International Leap-1A engines, and joins the airline's existing A320-family fleet comprising 12 A320ceo and 31 A320neo aircraft, according to Cirium fleet data. The airline also operates 39 Boeing 737-800s.
"We are delighted and proud to have received our first A321neo, the largest member of the Airbus A320 family, of which we aim to form half of our fleet by 2024," says Pegasus chief executive Mehmet Nane.
