Airbus has taken orders for more than 7,900 A320 aircraft, and delivered more than 4,800 to 340 customers and operators worldwide. The A320neo has more than 95 percent airframe commonality to fit into existing fleets while offering as much as 500 nautical miles more range or two tonnes more payload at a given range, Airbus officials say.
The A320neo is designed to deliver 15 percent in fuel savings and NOx emissions from earlier models of the A320. “The use o fuel efficient aircraft is key to our fuel conservation program and to our contribution to the industry CO2 emissions reduction," says José Zaidan Maluf, contracts and supply vice president of TAM Airlines.
