Finnair receives world’s first A321 with Sharklets
Finnair, the launch customer for the A321 equipped with Sharklets, has taken delivery of its first of five aircraft on order.
The aircraft will eventually replace Finnair’s existing fleet of 757s, making it an all Airbus operator.
The aircraft was officially handed over to Ville Iho, Finnair Chief Operating Officer, during a delivery ceremony at the Airbus facilities in Hamburg, Germany.
Finnair will take delivery of a total of five Sharklet equipped A321s. It currently operates an Airbus fleet of 40 aircraft (25 A320 family aircraft and 15 A330s/A340s). Finnair was the first airline to commit to the A350 XWB with a total of 11 aircraft on order.
