Shenzhen Airlines takes delivery of its first A320neo

Shenzhen Airlines has taken delivery of the airline’s first Airbus A320neo aircraft.

In addition to the newly delivered aircraft, the airline has 26 GTF-powered A320neo family aircraft on firm order. Shenzhen Airlines currently operates 41 Pratt & Whitney V2500 powered A320ceo aircraft. The Shenzhen- based airline is the seventh Chinese air carrier to receive a GTF-powered aircraft.

“We appreciate the continued confidence Shenzhen Airlines has placed in our engines,” said Doug Cai, president of Pratt & Whitney China. “The expansion of their fleet marks the start of a new era, and we look forward to powering and supporting the entire fleet of V2500 and GTF- powered aircraft for many years to come.”
