HiSky representatives performed, on Tuesday, February 28, the final inspection and acceptance flight for the first A321neo LR aircraft, which will enter the company's fleet. Thus, HiSky officially becomes the first air operator to register this aircraft model in Romania. In the coming days, the aircraft, registration YR-WOW, will be transferred from the Airbus factory in Hamburg, Germany, to the maintenance base in the Czech Republic for painting, before arriving in Bucharest at the end of this month.

HiSky has received the first A321neo LR

The new HiSky aircraft was produced in 2022 and is part of the latest generation developed by Airbus, which incorporates the latest technologies in air transport safety and efficiency. The two Pratt & Whitney GTF engines with which it is equipped ensure a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 20% and emit up to 20% less CO2 and 50% less NOx.

"Only two years since HiSky started operating regular flights, here we are able to bring to our fleet the best performing aircraft model currently on the market. The final inspection and acceptance flight of a new aircraft, right at the Airbus factory, are experiences that every pilot and every entrepreneur in this industry dreams of, and I'm glad I had the opportunity.

But this moment marks, first of all, the fulfillment of the promise we made to ourselves and the passengers, from the very beginning. We set out to be a modern company, adapted to the times, and safety and measures to reduce the impact of aviation on the environment are the objectives around which we build," said Iulian Scorpan, CEO of HiSky.

The A321neo LR has a range of up to 7400 km

HiSky's chosen model, the A321neo LR, is the extended-range version of the A321neo aircraft, capable of traveling a distance of up to 7,400 km. This performance will allow the airline to operate non-stop flights to more distant destinations. The aircraft registered YR-WOW has a cabin configuration of only 201 seats, thus offering significant space to each passenger, given that the maximum number of seats with which this model can be equipped is 244.

This is the sixth aircraft in the HiSky fleet, which thus becomes the largest Airbus operator in Romania. The seventh aircraft, also an A321neo LR, is scheduled to be delivered by the French manufacturer at the end of April. HiSky operates regular flights from Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Iasi, Baia Mare and Chisinau to domestic and international destinations, as well as charter flights in partnership with the main travel agencies in Romania.
