Bingo Airways, a new Polish charter airline, has started flight operations with its first Airbus A320 aircraft. The fleet will grow to three aircraft by the end of 2012. The new A320s, powered by IAE V2500 engines, are configured in an all economy 180 seat configuration.
The airlines’ network is focused on flights to the Mediterranean (Egypt, Turkey, Greece, Spain and Tunisia). Bingo Airways’ bases in Poland will be Warsaw Chopin and Katowice Airports.
“We are extremely happy with the decision to use A320 family aircraft, which give us a competitive advantage over our main competitors on the Polish charter market. The A320 gives us optimal capacity and range capability as well as superior comfort for our passengers, which is a key to our strategy”, says Marek Sidor, CEO of Bingo Airways.
“We are delighted to welcome Bingo Airways as a new Airbus operator. The A320 has the widest most comfortable cabin and the best performance of any single-aisle aircraft. Passengers love it and operators love it too,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers.
As of today, nearly 8,400 Airbus A320 Family aircraft have been sold to more than 360 customers and operators worldwide, making it the world’s best selling commercial jetliner ever. With proven reliability and extended servicing periods, the A320 Family has the lowest operating costs of any single-aisle aircraft.
