Equally important, the cabin configuration of these aircraft will be entirely different with a higher level of comfort for both Economy and Business Class passengers and a seat count which will be reduced from 220 in the airline’s standard A321neo version, to ‘fewer than 180’ seats.

Additional features will also include satellite connectivity, in-flight entertainment (IFE screens) in every seat and most importantly a premium lie-flat seat Business Class product. The company will host a media event within Q2 2024 to present the product features of these aircraft to the public.

Aegean CEO Dimitris Gerogiannis stated, “We believe in the great opportunity for Aegean and for our country that lies in developing markets beyond the EU, either in the Gulf area, Africa or in regions of Asia which could be served with a special, extended range, version of the A321neo given our location in the southeast edge of Europe”.
