The Airbus 321-200 is a single aisle, twin-engine jet manufactured by Airbus Industries, the European consortium. It is part of the Airbus 320 family, the world’s best selling aircraft line.
Compared with the A320 the A321's obvious difference is the stretched fuselage. Other, less visible changes include more powerful engines, a strengthened undercarriage and larger tyres, all to cope with the extra weight of the aircraft.
