Aircraft Data

The A321 is a twin engined narrow body short to medium range airliner. It is a minimum change stretch version of the basic A320. The 321 has about 7 metres added to the fuselage, and some strengthening to cater for extra weight.

The A321-100 is the basic version of the 321, with reduced range compared to the A320, as fuel tankage was kept the same.
