Frontier Mulls Transatlantic Expansion with A321XLR

DALLAS – Ultra-Low-Cost-carrier (ULCC) Frontier Airlines (F9) is exploring joining the transatlantic market and hasn’t excluded long-haul flights to South America, as it awaits delivery of 18 Airbus A321XLRs.

The A321XLR, which completed its maiden flight in June, will be the longest-range single-aisle aircraft constructed in decades when it enters service in 2024. With its 4,700 nm range, the aircraft will be able to fly 30% further than F9’s recently introduced A321neo, and 700 nm farther than the A321LR model.
