The A320neo was one of many upgrades introduced by Airbus to help keep the A320 product line’s position as the world’s most advanced and fuel-efficient single-aisle aircraft.
It did just that and today overall the A320neo Family is the most successful aircraft family ever with 60% market share and 99.7 operational reliability.
It’s clear to see why customers like BA love it...
More than 1,900neo Family aircraft have been delivered since Entry into Service in 2016, helping save 10 million tons of CO2 to date.
The improved environmental performance is thanks to Sharklets which help improve wing dynamics, cabin innovation and optimisation and new generation fuel-efficient engines.
BA’s campaign aircraft features LEAP-1A engines from CFM International and has been gracing the skies for BA since April 2018. The other engine option available to customers is Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower PW1100G-JM geared turbofan.
