The reimagined flying experience on Cathay Pacific's A321neo aircraft.

Cathay Pacific's state-of-the-art Airbus A321neo aircraft entered commercial service on 4th August, with its inaugural flight from Hong Kong to Shanghai (Pudong). Cathay Pacific has taken delivery of four A321neos; two more will arrive before the end of this year and a total of 16 A321neos will be deployed on regional routes by the end of 2023. 

The single-aisle A321neo has 202 seats, including 12 in Business Class and 190 in Economy Class, and is the first aircraft to feature Cathay Pacific’s newly designed Regional Business Class seat product. This next-generation, hard-shell recliner seat provides a cocoon-like environment, with divider screens for maximum privacy. Economy Class seats will also feature a generous recline, comfortable seat cushions and new adjustable headrests, while extra-large overhead storage bins in all cabins provide space for 60% more carry-on luggage.

With the A321neo, Cathay Pacific is the first airline in the world to provide 4K ultra-high-definition personal TV screens, a 4K video-on-demand experience as well as Bluetooth audio streaming (being introduced progressively) across all cabins. With high-speed Wi-Fi on board (also being introduced progressively), customers can catch up on emails or stay in touch with friends and family.

In addition to superior comfort levels, the new A321neos are also more efficient, delivering a 22% reduction in CO2 emissions on a per-seat basis, when compared to the previous A321 aircraft. They are also quieter, with an almost 15% reduction in the level of noise generated.
