Low-cost Chilean airline, SKY received its first leased A321neo from Air Lease Corporation, becoming the first airline in Chile to operate the Airbus A321neo.


SKY's A321neo aircraft are equipped with CFM Leap-1A engines and can accommodate up to 238 passengers in two classes. SKY is the first operator in South America to operate the A321neo in a high-density cabin configuration.


The A321neo has 95 percent of the fuselage in common with the Airbus A320 family, harmonizing perfectly with SKY's fleet of 19 A320neos. The aircraft incorporates new generation engines and Sharklets, which together offer more than 20 percent fuel and CO2 savings, as well as 50 percent noise reduction. In addition, the A321neo shares a common rating with other members of the Airbus A320 Family, which allows A320 Family pilots to fly the aircraft without additional training.


SKY has been an Airbus customer since 2010 and became a fully Airbus operator in 2013. The A321neo will allow SKY to further expand its route offering in Latin America in the near future.


Airbus has sold more than 1,100 aircraft and has a backlog of nearly 430 for delivery in Latin America and the Caribbean. Currently, Airbus has more than 660 aircraft in operation across the region, representing approximately 60 percent of the fleet's market share in service. Since 1994, Airbus has secured nearly 70 percent of net orders in the region.
