Air Transat invests in comfort and buys 15 new Airbus planes with leather seats on all classes

Watch out, leather is in the air: Air Transat announced on May 3rd that the business purchased 15 Airbus A321neoLR planes. The model, as communicated by the Canadian enterprise, offers performances in line with the company’s environmental efforts: it consumes 15% less fuel in comparison to previous Airbus planes, emitting 5,000 less tons of CO2 per year. Moreover, every Airbus A321neoLR has 12 leather seats in Club Class and 187 more leather seats in Business Class. Air Transat explained how the seats on this plane are wider than the average Airbus seat. The choice is part of the idea of cabin comfort: “A key element behind every choice we made – commented Annick Guérard, ceo of Air Transat -, is that the passanger needs to already feel on vacation at the time of boearding”. The deliveries of Airbus A321neoLR planes have already started: the Canadian company will have the first two planes before June, while other deliveries will be made in the second half of the year. The complete integration of all 15 planes will be reached before 2022.
