The airline is also planning to lease four A321LRs. With its extra-long range, the A321XLR will allow Icelandair to seize new market opportunities. The aircraft will also enable the airline to reduce its operating costs and support its sustainability targets. https://www.thebusinessdesk.com/northwest/news/2117292-icelandair-is-latest-airbus-customer-with-first-order-and-leasing-plans?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=NorthWest_7th_Jul_2023_Daily ___________________ Aircraft group Airbus has been given a manufacturing boost after Mexican ultra-low-cost airline Viva Aerobus signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for 90 A321neo aircraft.
