S7 receives first A321neo

Russia's S7 Airlines has taken delivery of its first Airbus A321neo, one of four being leased this year from US firm Air Lease Corporation.

The aircraft delivered is a Pratt & Whitney PW1100G-powered airframe, the lessor says.

S7 is already an operator of A321s, with several CFM International CFM56-powered aircraft in its fleet.

It has also been receiving A320neos over the past year.

S7 says the A321neo will enable it to increase capacity on long-range domestic flights, adding that it will also deploy the type on international routes.
