About the A320neo

The A320neo provides minimum change with maximum benefit for the A319, A320 and A321 through the incorporation of two new engine choices – the PurePower PW1100G-JM from Pratt & Whitney and CFM International’s LEAP-1A – along with Airbus’ Sharklets large wingtip devices.

The NEO will deliver a 20 per cent fuel burn improvement per seat and an additional flight distance of 500 nautical miles (950 kilometres), or the ability to carry two tonnes more payload at a given range. For the environment, the A320neo’s fuel savings translate into some 3,600 tonnes less CO2 per aircraft per year.

Additionally, the A320neo will provide a double-digit reduction in NOx emissions and reduced engine noise.

The A320neo versions will have over 95 per cent airframe commonality with the A320ceo (current engine option) versions, enabling it to fit seamlessly into existing A320 Family fleets – a key factor for Airbus customers and operators which have taken delivery of more than 6,000 of these aircraft through mid-2014.
