DALLAS — ITA Airways (AZ) has recently taken delivery of its first A321neo aircraft, which was leased from Air Lease Corporation. This new addition reinforces AZ’s preference for having an all-Airbus fleet, which currently consists of 81 planes, including the A220, A320neo, A330neo, and A350 models.
The A321neo will primarily operate on the airline’s medium-haul routes and boast a three-class configuration. This includes 12 Business Class seats with full flat beds and direct aisle access, 12 Premium Economy seats arranged in a 4-abreast configuration, and 141 Economy seats, with 12 of them dedicated to Comfort Economy passengers.

Furthermore, each seat is equipped with a state-of-the-art in-flight entertainment system, providing individual screens and on-demand content for an enhanced passenger experience.
