La Compagnie (B0, Paris Orly) has taken delivery of its first A321-200neo(LR) following the arrival of F-HBUZ (msn 8866) at Paris Orly on Saturday, May 18.

The longhaul-capable narrowbody features 76 full-flat seats and will be pressed into service on June 6 when it will be used to expand La Compagnie's Paris Orly-New York Newark route to 3x daily. A second of the type, also on lease from GECAS, is due to deliver in September.

The Airbus jets will initially compliment La Compagnie's existing fleet of two B757-200s before replacing one of them.
