Air Transat has debuted its more sustainable A321neoLR aircraft at Gatwick.

It has joined the fleet as part of the carriers’ commitment to sustainable tourism.

Passengers travelling in Economy will find wider leather seats with 10-inch touchscreens and USB ports. Meanwhile, Club Class passengers will experience a re-designed cabin with featuring leather seats with a leg rest and wider 13-inch touchscreens.

Adrian Keating, commercial director UK and Ireland at Air Transat said: “We’re delighted that our valued customers in the UK and Ireland are now able to experience our state-of-the-art A321neoLR aircraft on our routes from London Gatwick and, in the near future, from Glasgow too.”
