Belgium’s national airline and member of the Lufthansa Group, Brussels Airlines, has taken delivery of its first out of five new A320neo aircraft.
The A320neo is part of the airline’s fleet renewal strategy to operate the latest state-of-the-art, efficient aircraft in order to meet Brussels Airlines’ ambitious sustainability targets.
The A320neo incorporates the latest technologies, including new-generation CFM International LEAP-1A engines for greater efficiency and Sharklets for improved aerodynamics, which together reduce fuel burn and CO2 emissions by at least 20%. The aircraft is also a good neighbour at airports with a 50% lower noise footprint compared to previous-generation aircraft.
The Brussels Airlines A320neo features a single-class layout with 180 seats and is equipped with the Airbus Airspace cabin. The A320neo will take the passenger experience to new heights in comfort, ambience and service. Unique and customisable lighting sets the mood for all phases of the flight.
The new A320neo will join Brussels Airlines’ all Airbus fleet of 43 aircraft, including 34 A320-family aircraft and nine A330-300s. Perfectly sized for the European market, the new aircraft will enter into service on the carrier’s short- to medium-haul network.
