The A320 New Engine Option

The A320 New Engine Option
Airbus’ highly-efficient A320neo (new engine option) jetliner is scheduled to take to the skies for the first time on 25th September 2014

The market-leading A320neo (new engine option) Family is the world’s best-selling single-aisle aircraft product line – offering 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 result in 20 per cent fuel savings per seat compared with current engine option (CEO) aircraft, along with two tonnes more payload, up to 500 nautical miles additional range, lower operating costs, and reductions in engine noise and emissions.
