Latin America’s leading airline group to become first A320neo operator in South America
The first A320neo for LATAM Airlines Group rolled out of the Airbus Final Assembly Line in Toulouse after the installation of Pratt & Whitney Pure Power PW1100-JM engines, revealing the airline’s new coral and indigo livery. The aircraft will continue through the next stages of production, including completion of cabin furnishing, ground and flight tests. The aircraft is scheduled for delivery to LATAM Airlines Group in the near future.
LATAM Airlines Brasil will become the first airline in South America to fly the A320neo. The airline group was the first A320neo customer in Latin America and has more than 250 Airbus planes in operation.
The A320neo Family incorporates latest technologies including new generation engines and Sharklet wing tip devices, which together deliver more than 15 percent in fuel savings from day one and 20 percent by 2020 with further cabin innovations.
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 percent share of the market. Thanks to their widest cabin, all members of the A320neo Family offer unmatched comfort in all classes and Airbus’ 18” wide seats in economy as standard. To date, nine A320neo aircraft have been delivered to three customers.
