|Email item||Print item||
A brand new 180-seater Airbus A320neo straight off the production line, will join Air Malta’s fleet this May as part of the airline’s growth and expansion plans.
The airline said that it is concluding an agreement to lease the aircraft, which is currently being assembled at the Airbus plant in Toulouse, France. Air Malta said that this summer it will be operating with 10 Airbus aircraft (9 A320 and 1 A319).
The Airbus A320neo is a development of the A320 family. Apart from the enhanced specifications like a more modern look and feel of the cabin that includes led lightning, and larger luggage storage, the aircraft is projected to decrease operational costs especially on fuel efficiency by 11-17%.
Due to its fuel efficiency the aircraft is capable of longer range flights of about 10-15% due to its lower fuel burn rate. The aircraft will be equipped with CFM International LEAP-1A engines.
