Airbus intending to close range gap between narrowbodies and widebodies

27 November, 2018

Airbus Commercial Aircraft president Guillaume Faury said the manufacturer intends to "completely close the gap between the single-aisle and the long-range," with its A330neo and A321neo aircraft (Bloomberg, 26-Nov-2018). Airbus reportedly plans to offer a reduced take-off weight variant of the A330neo and a further range enhanced version of the A321neo in 2019, to close the current range operating capacity gap between its narrowbody and widebody aircraft families.
