First A320neo reaches completion

Construction of the first Airbus A320neo has been completed, following painting of the aircraft and installation of the Pratt & Whitney PW1100G-JM engines. The aircraft will be the first A320neo to fly.

Flight testing for the A320neo will commence in September 2014, with entry into service expected in Q4 2015.

The A320neo (“new engine option”) is designed to deliver a 15% fuel saving and a reduction of 3,600 tonnes of CO2 per-aircraft per-year.

Airbus has received nearly 2,700 orders from more than 50 customers since its launch in 2010, representing some 60% of the market.
