Vueling takes delivery of first enhanced comfort A320
Spanish carrier Vueling, the low cost platform for International Airlines Group (IAG), has taken delivery of the first A320 incorporating the new Vueling cabin configuration. Thanks to an efficient use of the cabin and the selection of the latest generation seats, Vueling will offer enhanced comfort and more space to its passengers while adding six extra seats. The new Vueling cabin is equipped with the innovative Airbus Space-Flex module that makes for a more efficient use of the volume at the rear end of the cabin. Vueling is the first customer benefiting from the new exit limits, which when combined with the Airbus Space-Flex module increases the A320 seating capacity from 180 to 186 seats while retaining the higher comfort level of the Airbus 18” (45,72 cm) wide seat. The A320ceo, equipped with IAE engines and Sharklets, is part of the 62 A320 Family aircraft (30 A320ceo and 32 A320neo) ordered in August 2013.
