The A320 New Engine Option
The market-leading A320neo (new engine option) Family is the world’s best-selling single-aisle aircraft product line – providing unbeatable efficiency and comfort to its global customer base.
As a reference for traditional airlines and low-cost carriers alike, NEO aircraft benefit from Airbus’ reputation for continuous innovation. Among the enhancements incorporated on A320neo Family jetliners – which comprise the A319neo, A320neo and A321neo – are two latest-generation powerplant choices (Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower PW1100G-JM and the CFM International LEAP-1A), the incorporation of Sharklets wingtip devices and additional cabin optimisation.
These improvements will result in 20 per cent fuel savings per seat compared with current engine option (CEO) aircraft by 2020, along with two tonnes more payload, up to 500 nautical miles additional range, lower operating costs, and reductions in engine noise and emissions.
In January 2016, this new era in single-aisle efficiency officially opened with the delivery of the first A320neo Family aircraft – and A320neo equipped with Pratt & Whitney PurePower® Geared Turbofan™ engines – to launch operator Lufthansa. Airbus followed this with another milestone NEO handover: the no. 1 LEAP-1A powered A320neo version, which was received by Turkey’s Pegasus Airlines during July 2016.
Another key programme achievement was reached in February 2016 with first flight of the A321neo equipped with CFM International LEAP-1A engines.
As of June 2016, the A320neo Family has received more than 4,500 orders from over 80 customers – capturing a 60 percent market share since its launch in 2010.
