Air Arabia, the Sharjah-based low-cost carrier, has received its second Airbus A321neo Long Range (LR) which will allow it to expand its network of medium haul destinations.

The airline said in a statement that the addition of the second A321neo LR will also enable it to strengthen its existing routes.

The A321 neo LR accommodates 215 passengers and is equipped with Air Arabia’s complimentary in-flight entertainment system SkyTime that allows passengers to live stream digital content on smartphones, tablets and laptops.

Air Arabia is the first Middle Eastern airline to operate the A321neo LR and this delivery is the second of six aircraft that will join the airline’s fleet of 53 Airbus A320 aircraft, serving more than 170 routes from its four hubs including Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah, Morocco and Egypt.
