Cathay Dragon has signed a memorandum of understanding with Airbus for the acquisition of 32 Airbus A321neo aircraft. The new aircraft, valued at approximately HK$31.7 billion at current list prices, are scheduled for delivery between 2020 and 2023. The environmentally friendly A321neo has seating capacity for up to 240 passengers and an extended range of up to 7,400km and according to Airbus, offers the lowest possible operating costs in its class, as well as noise reduction of up to 50% less than current A321 aircraft. The new aircraft are intended to replace and expand Cathay Dragon’s existing single-aisle fleet of 15 Airbus A320s and eight Airbus A321s. The airline, which also operates 24 wide-body Airbus A330s, serves 56 destinations in Asia, including 28 cities in Mainland China.
