The largest aircraft in Airbus’ A320neo Family, the A321neo has unmatched range and performance. The A321neo, which has the widest single-aisle cabin and the most overhead storage space, maximizes passenger comfort while bringing a 50% noise reduction and a fuel savings of over 20% over previous single-aisle generation aircraft via the next-generation engines and Sharklets.

The A320 Family is the cornerstone of Viva Aerobus’ fleet renewal strategy. The airline made the biggest single Airbus aircraft order in Mexico in 2013 when it ordered 52 A320 Family aircraft. 25 A321neo aircraft were purchased by Viva Aerobus in 2018. As of now, 74 A320 Family aircraft are in operation with Viva Aerobus.
