KLM unveils new livery for A321neo


Amsterdam-based carrier KLM Royal Dutch Airlines today unveiled details of the livery and interior features of its incoming Airbus A321neo fleet.

Set to begin service in August 2024, the A321neo is intended to elevate the passenger experience while reducing environmental impact, according to the airline.

The updated livery offers a refreshed take on KLM’s classic blue and white design. The iconic blue extends further down the fuselage to fully cover the nose section.

Practicality influenced this change, allowing for emergency nose cone replacement without altering the signature KLM aesthetic.

The cockpit windows sport a distinctive black outline.

Inside the A321neo, travelers will find wider seats, more spacious overhead bins, and larger tray tables. 

For greater convenience, each seat will feature a tablet holder and USB port, complemented by adjustable “mood lighting” throughout the cabin.

The A321neo stands out with its reduced noise and carbon emissions.

According to KLM, the aircraft is 50% quieter and emits 15% less carbon than its predecessors.

KLM Chief Executive Officer Marjan Rintel said:

The arrival of the A321neo marks a major upgrade of our European fleet. It is 50% quieter and generates 15% fewer carbon emissions than the aircraft it is replacing, making this an important step towards cleaner, quieter and more fuel-efficient aviation.

The airline expects to take delivery of approximately 30 A321neos.

Copenhagen, Berlin, and Stockholm are confirmed as initial destinations for the new aircraft.
