The A320neo Family’s Impact

Over the last two decades, the A320neo has been instrumental in democratising air travel in India. As an expanding economy and rising disposable incomes continue to add millions of first-time flyers to a booming aviation market, the A320neo has been at the forefront. With enhanced aerodynamics and the latest-generation jet engines, it offers significant reductions in fuel consumption and lower emissions.

With more than 8,700 orders from over 130 customers, the A320neo Family is the undisputed leader in the single-aisle aircraft category. This record order from IndiGo at the Paris Air Show 2023 further cements the A320neo Family’s position as the aircraft of choice for airlines around the world across all business models.
