100 new Airbus A321neo aircraft on order

After adding the Embraer 195-E2 to the European fleet, KLM is making a significant step towards achieving its sustainability goals and improving customer experience and comfort with the Airbus A321neo. This aircraft also contributes to reducing noise pollution, as it produces up to 50% less noise compared to previous generation aircraft. These developments are crucial for realizing the ambition of having a cleaner, quieter, and more efficient fleet.

This large order of 100 Airbus A321neo aircraft has been placed by the Air France-KLM Group. In addition to KLM, Transavia and Transavia France will also receive aircraft from this order. This investment underscores the group's commitment to the future of sustainable aviation and enhancing the passenger experience on their European routes.

The arrival of the A321neo represents a major upgrade for our European fleet. The aircraft produces up to fifty percent less noise and fifteen percent less CO2 emissions compared to the aircraft it replaces, marking a significant step towards cleaner, quieter, and more efficient flying.
