AIRBUS NOT CONFIDENT OF A320 REDESIGN

Chief executive of Airbus Tom Enders told media that although it keenly awaited decision on whether to upgrade the A320 aircraft was not easy and that scrapping the idea would be a disaster.

Refitting the narrowbody aircraft with new fuel-efficient engines makes strategic sense according to Enders but not to the detriment of resources. Airbus engineers are working on the A380 and A350 programme, redesigning the A320 at the same time could stretch resources.

“We must therefore evaluate very seriously if we are capable of working in parallel on a re-engined A320…If we ultimately decide not to do the A320 NEO, so as not to endanger current programmes, then the sky won’t collapse on our heads,” said Enders.
