Atlantic Airways Takes Delivery of its First A320neo

Atlantic Airways, the Faroe Islands flag carrier, has taken delivery of its first A320neo, MSN8918. Leased from Air Lease Corporation (ALC: NYSE: AL), this aircraft is powered by CFM International’s LEAP-1A engines and is configured in an all-economy cabin layout.

With its new Airbus fleet member, Atlantic Airways will further develop its European network. The airline, an Airbus customer since 2008, already operates an all-Airbus fleet of three A320 Family aircraft (currently two A319ceos and one A320ceo). In addition, the airline also recently placed a firm order for two additional A320neos.

Featuring the widest single-aisle cabin in the sky, the efficient A320neo Family incorporates the very latest technologies including new generation engines and Sharklets, which together deliver more than 20% fuel and CO2 savings as well as a 50% noise reduction. With more than 6,500 orders received from over 100 customers, the A320neo Family has captured some 60% of the market.
