Farnborough 2016: Go Air doubles A320neo order to 144 aircraft
Indian low-cost airline Go Air has chosen Airbus for its further expansion plans by signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for 72 A320neo aircraft. The order follows a similar agreement for 72 A320neo placed in 2011 bringing the total order book to 144 aircraft.
“The new A320neo provide us the competitive edge to achieve our growth targets and help us strengthening our presence in the wider region. It also reaffirms Go Air’s commitment to deliver the most modern air travel experience to all customers as well as to strengthen business expansion of the company,” said Go Air CEO Wolfgang Prock-Schauer.
“This further commitment by Go Air is a testament to the reliability, passenger popularity and unbeatable operating economics of the A320 Family. I congratulate Go Air,” said Airbus Chief Operating Officer Customers, John Leahy.” Go Air is among the three first A320neo operators, and with an order for 144 is one of the leading operators of the type.”
Go Air is the first airline to use A320 NEO in Spaceflex configuration with 186 seats without compromising on the passenger leg room and comfort. This configuration will also enable better service and availability during peak season for the travelers.
The A320neo Family is the world’s best-selling single aisle product line with over 4,500 orders from 83 customers since its launch in 2010 capturing almost 60% share of the market.
