Airbus says it could deliver an extended-range A321XLR derivative within five years, but is yet to formally confirm the status of the project.

Speaking at the IATA AGM in Seoul, Airbus chief commercial officer Christian Scherer hinted at plans for extended-range versions [plural] of the A321 in its single-aisle line-up.

The XLR variant is believed to incorporate wing and weight upgrades to enable it carry around 220 passengers over 4,000nm (7,410km). It may also feature a revised cockpit incorporating the latest technology from the A350.
