Atlantic Airways has taken delivery of its first A320neo, MSN8918.
On hire from Air Lease Corporation, the aircraft is powered by CFMI LEAP-1A engines and is configured in an all-economy cabin layout.
With its new Airbus fleet member, the Faroe Islands flag carrier 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 per cent fuel and CO2 savings as well as a 50 per cent noise reduction.
With more than 6,500 orders received from over 100 customers, the A320neo family has captured some 60 per cent of the market.
