Airbus delivers 1000th A320neo to IndiGo
Airbus has delivered the 1,000th A320neo Family aircraft to IndiGo. The millenial aircraft is the Airbus A321neo variant.
The A320 neo (neo stands for new engine option) program is based on the previous Airbus’ best-seller the A320ceo. Launched at the very end of 2010, the new airliner took the skies for the first time in September 2014 before entering commercial passenger service with Lufthansa in January 2016.
The A320neo family has three aircraft types under its umbrella: the A319neo, the A320neo and the A321neo. The latter one also features two long-range variants, the A321LR and the newcomer A321XLR, which was launched this year and is expected to enter service in 2023.
The airliners are produced at four manufacturing sites across the world: Toulouse (France), Hamburg (Germany), Tianjin (China), and Mobile (the United States). Airbus the A320neo has the “widest single aisle cabin” and incorporate “the very latest technologies”, such as Sharklets on wings and, of course, new generation engines.
