There are 8 A321s in the Swiss fleet of 69 planes, which have a total seating capacity of 170-186 passengers in a 2 class layout. The configuration shown here is the 170 passenger layout. These planes cruise at a speed of 850km/h, and have a range of 3200km.
The Airbus A321 is the Swiss solution for larger passenger loads on short and medium haul routes, accommodating 170 to 186 passengers and 4.3 tonnes of cargo. At 44.5 metres in length, the Airbus A321 is the “big brother” of the family, a third longer than its smallest “sibling”. Eight Airbus A321’s are in service on longer routes within Europe and between Switzerland and North Africa and the Middle East. The average age of these aircraft is five years.
Swiss operates a versatile fleet of 69 aircraft – 18 for long-haul and 51 for medium and short-haul operations. There are currently eight different types of aircraft in the fleet: for long-haul flights Swiss operates the Airbus A340 which entered service in July 2003 and A330. For medium and short-haul, it relies on the Airbus A320 family (A319, A320 and A321), the Avro RJ 85 and RJ 100 and the Embraer RJ 145.
