The Airline invested NZD$2.8 billion, to buy seven A321neos and six A320neos., which are scheduled to enter service through 2024.
The 214 seats second A321neo is expected to enter service in November, while the airline’s first A320neo is scheduled for February 2019. The remaining aircraft will follow at intervals through until late 2019. The additional A321neos for the airline’s domestic network are expected to be delivered from 2020 to 2024.
In the meantime, unconfirmed report says that the first ANZ A321neo flight scheduled for Hamburg, Germany was cancelled due to issues with engine., and the bookings for the flights scheduled with this aircraft are temporarily on hold.
