First commercial flight today for tap’s third airbus A321neo

TAP’s third Airbus A321neo, one of 71 new aircraft TAP is to receive by 2025, entered commercial service today. On this its first day, the aircraft flew to Brussels. 
TAP has already received five new Airbus aircraft. The first the company received was an Airbus A320neo, which has been in service since June. In September, TAP welcomed two Airbus A321neo aircraft to its fleet and, just last week, the latest Airbus A330neo arrived in Lisbon, with TAP set to become the first airline in the world to put this aircraft into service. 
Today it was the turn of an Airbus A321neo, registration CS-TJK, to make its maiden commercial flight. The Airbus A321neo has 216 seats, more features, is more comfortable and more modern. With significant reductions in fuel consumption, it is 15% more efficient than the previous model, allowing an annual saving of up to 1,500 tonnes of fuel and a 4,700 tonne reduction in CO2 emissions.
By 2025, TAP will have one of the most modern fleets of any major airline. The modernisation of TAP’s fleet with the most advanced aircraft available on the market is going to enable the company to improve its service and extend new destinations even more efficiently, improving its competitiveness in the global market, contributing to Portugal’s growing importance as an Atlantic airline hub and attracting more tourists to the country.
