Airbus A321

GBAIR introduced the Airbus A321-S Enhanced in October 2015. This variant of the Airbus A320 family features improved engines, wing enhancements, lighter materials, extra fuel capacity and improved avionics - all of which contribute to Enhanced performance over earlier versions of the A320 family. The A321-S also features "Sharklets", a distinctive fin on each wing tip which reduces drag and improves lift.

The aircraft are operated in 2 configurations, an all Economy Cabin variant  & an 'Envoy Class' version that features Business Class & Economy Class cabins. The Envoy Class aircraft feature HD Seat Back AVOD so passengers can enjoy entertainment on demand and follow the progress of the flight.

Airbus A318

GBAIR's expansion into the short-haul market required more capacity over the Embraer regional jets, this was achieved by leasing a number of Airbus A318 jets, the smallest member of the Airbus A320 family. However, after Summer 2015 - additional capacity was needed and the majority of the A318 fleet was replaced by larger A319 aircraft. The mainstay of the short-haul fleet would eventually become the Boeing 737.

A sole A318 was retained and configured in an all business class layout to operate specific routes from London City, these services came to an end in February 2018 and our A318 aircraft is now configured with a full economy class cabin. We use the A318 on charter services and to support the operation when required. The aircraft is registered in Ireland and operated by our GBAIR Europe subsidary.
