As the industry eagerly awaits for an update on Boeing’s new 797 mid-range aircraft or NMA at the upcoming Paris Air Show 2019, Airbus may have something more substantial up its sleeve. According to various sources, the European plane maker is likely to launch an extra long-range variant of its A321 family of aircraft, the A321XLR, which would be a direct competitor to the Boeing 797.
Daher, the French manufacturer of the TBM family, plans to acquire the planemaker Quest Aircraft Company, based in Idaho, USA, which builds the Kodiak 100.
Crushing the hopes of some carriers that expected the aircraft to operate again around the end of the summer, an official of the Federal Aviation Administration said that the Boeing 737 MAX may not be back in the air before December 2019.
