The holding said Aer Lingus will use its A321neo(XLR)s to expand to North America, while Iberia will deploy them to unspecified transatlantic markets.

"The airlines will be among the launch customers for the extra long-range narrowbody aircraft with their first deliveries scheduled for 2023," Willie Walsh, IAG chief executive, said.
