Switzerland’s flag-carrier airline, Swiss, has taken their first delivery of the Airbus A321neo.
What do we know about the new A321neo?
The brand-new aircraft has the registration HB-JPA and is called “Stoos”.
Now you may think this is a rather odd name however, Swiss have a tradition of naming aircraft after locations in Switzerland.

Swiss also operates a number of A220, A330-300, A340-300 and Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. Seven months ago, Swiss took delivery of its first Airbus A320neo jet.
The carrier is also awaiting fifteen more A320neo and seven A321neo aircraft. These will replace the older fleet of A320ceo and A321ceo jets.
