Firm order for seven aircraft plus three options

Royal Brunei Airlines (RB) has signed a contract with Airbus covering the firm order of seven A320neo aircraft plus three options, under the latest phase of its fleet modernisation programme. Featuring a two class premium layout, the aircraft will be operated on the airline’s regional network linking Bandar Seri Begawan with destinations across Asia. The aircraft will be powered by Pratt & Whitney PW1100G-JM engines.
“RB has successfully operated the A320 family of aircraft since 2003. We are confident this latest NEO version will bring even greater levels of efficiency, with 15 per cent less fuel and a significantly reduced impact on the environment. At the same time, the new aircraft will offer unmatched levels of in-flight comfort, longer flying range and significant underfloor cargo capability”, said Dermot Mannion, Deputy Chairman of RB. 
“We are pleased that Royal Brunei Airlines has reaffirmed its commitment to the A320 Family,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. “The order once again underscores the leading position of the A320neo in the single aisle market. We look forward to seeing the eco-efficient NEO fly in the colours of Royal Brunei Airlines.”
The A320 Family is the world’s best-selling single aisle product line with more than 10,200 orders to date and over 6,000 aircraft delivered. The latest version A320neo incorporates new engines and "Sharklet" wing tip devices which together deliver up to 15 percent in fuel savings. As at the end of March 2014, firm orders for the NEO already stood at over 2,700 aircraft from 50 customers around the globe, representing a 60 per cent share of orders in its category.
