AWAS delivers its first new pipeline A320 aircraft with factory-fitted sharklets to Vueling

AWAS has delivered a new A320 passenger aircraft to Vueling, the Spanish low cost airline. This aircraft is from AWAS’ existing new order pipeline and is factory-fitted with advanced Sharklets.

This advanced end-of-wing Sharklet system has been developed by Airbus to save airlines up to $270k on fuel per aircraft each year along with several higher performance and lower maintenance benefits. Importantly, Sharklets can also save over 730t less CO2 emissions annually per aircraft.

“Vueling is very pleased to accept delivery of this new A320 aircraft, the first of two this year from AWAS,” said Alex Cruz, Vueling CEO. “They were able to work with us to quickly satisfy our requirements to aid in our fleet expansion and modernisation.”

“AWAS is proud to add Vueling as a new customer” said Marlin Dailey, Chief Commercial Officer AWAS. “They are a major, successful and expanding low cost carrier European airline and we look forward to growing our relationship in the near future.”

Karl Griffin, Chief Operations Officer AWAS said, “We are very pleased that AWAS has become one of the first lessors to offer the advanced, factory-build integrated Airbus Sharklet system on every A320 aircraft on our new order pipeline. This is a significant advancement and tangible benefit in efficiency for our customers.”
