Air Canada studying narrowbody aircraft for transatlantic market

The options Air Canada is looking at includes Airbus A321XLR and the Boeing 737 MAX.

A senior executive from Air Canada disclosed, the airlines is interested in further developing the usage of narrowbody aircraft for its transatlantic market and is studying available options from both Airbus and Boeing.

In a reply to a question, Mark Galardo, vice-president of network planning at Air Canada stated the national carrier is looking at options which include the Airbus A321XLR and the Boeing 737 MAX.

During a media briefing, he however stated, it would be “premature” to hover around the question of whether Air Canada might place an order for the Airbus A321XLR, which Airbus is likely to launch by mid-2019.

Although Air Canada defected from Airbus to Boeing in 2013 in order to meet its core narrowbody requirements, it still uses many Airbus planes in its operations.
