Airbus launches the A321XLR

At the Paris Air Show in 2019 Airbus announced the much anticipated A321XLR, the extra long range version of the A321neo. 

The changes compared to the A321LR include a new permanent Rear Centre Tank (RCT), a modified landing gear for the increased maximum take-off weight and an optimised wing trailing-edge flap configuration. Most likely you will see nothing of this on the outside, making it impossible to easily recognise this version from other A321neo versions. (photo copyright Airbus Industrie)
