Air India to get its first fuel-efficient A320Neo aircraft this week

After a delay of about one month, Air India is all set to induct the first A320Neo aircraft into its fleet this week, which will make it the third domestic carrier to have this latest single-aisle plane from Airbus. The national carrier has plans to induct a total of 29 A320 new engine option (Neo) into its fleet by March 2019. The induction of the new fuel-efficient aircraft into its fleet is aimed at augmenting the capacity in the domestic market which is growing at a rate of over 20 per cent for nearly two years now. The maker of A320Neo, European aviation major Airbus claims that these planes burn 15 per cent less fuel than the existing model. As per original schedule, Air India was to receive three such planes in this fiscal with two of them being in January itself. Courtesy: The Economic Times
