UPDATE: THE WORST KEPT SECRET IN AVIATION IS OUT AS AIRBUS GIVE GREEN LIGHT TO A320 UPGRADE

Airbus has confirmed plans to upgrade the A320 with new engines from 2016. The European aircraft manufacturer is investing €1 billion in the A320neo project, which with new engines will cut fuel costs by 15%, improve efficiency and cut emissions and noise.

The new aircraft will look almost identical to the existing model just with efficient engines from either Pratt & Whitney or CFM International. These engines will be offered as an option on A320 and derivative A319 and A321 models, classic versions will still be on sale.
