Royal Jordanian Airlines has bolstered its fleet after receiving a new Airbus A321.

The 168 seat plane arrived today, with the airline's management expecting another on May 20.

The A321s will operate on short and medium haul routes in Europe, the Arab Gulf and Indian Subcontinent, replacing two older models in Royal Jordanian's fleet.

Both new twin-engine planes will provide 20 seats for Crown Class passengers, with 148 in economy. According to the airline's directors, passengers can expect more efficient, comfortable travel on the A321s.

In recent years, Royal Jordanian's fleet has been expanded to include four A340s, five A310s and four A320s. The airline also has three A321s, one A319 and five Embraer 195s.

In March, the airline added an Airbus A319 to its fleet, with further deliveries expected in the coming years. By 2010, the airline will have seven newly manufactured A321s, A319s and Embraer 175s. It will also replace A340s and A310s with Boeing 787s within the next two years.
