Following an announcement by its CEO, Iberia confirmed on May 19 that it will be the launch carrier for the Airbus A321XLR, a narrow-body aircraft with the longest range on the market.

The initial confirmed destinations are Washington and Bonst, both in the United States, which will have flights from Madrid in the winter season.

The first A321XLR will be delivered to Iberia in the last quarter of 2024. IAG Group, the Spanish airline’s parent company, ordered 14 aircraft in 2019.

Initially, Aer Lingus was to receive the first jet, but IAG changed plans and made Iberia the launch customer.

The airline’s A321XLR will have a two-class configuration, with an Executive cabin with 14 seats that can fold out into beds and 4K screens.

The aircraft has an extra fuel tank that allows a range of 4,700 nm (8,700 km), capable of covering several transoceanic flights.

According to Iberia, the A321XLR consumes 30% less fuel than widebody jets.
