Global aircraft operating lessor BOC Aviation has signed a firm order for 80 A320neo-family aircraft comprising ten A321XLRs, 50 A321neos and 20 A320neos. The latest agreement takes BOC Aviation’s total direct orders with Airbus to 453 aircraft from the single-aisle A320 family to the A330 and A350 wide-bodies.
The A320neo family incorporates new-generation engines and Sharklets, which together deliver at least 20% fuel and CO2 savings, as well as a 50% noise reduction. The A321XLR version provides a further range extension to 4,700nm. This gives the A321XLR a flight time of up to 11 hours, with passengers benefitting throughout the trip from Airbus’ award-winning Airspace interior, which brings the latest cabin technology and design to the A320 family.Email Post to a Friend
