AIRBUS A-320neo AIRBUS A-320neo 3D


Short to medium range single aisle airliner, based on the A320. The "neo" suffix stands for "new engine option". This series of the A320 family was developed since 2010 with first aircraft being delivered in 2016. The "neo" aircraft featured new engines (PW 1100G or CFM LEAP-1A) and a new type of wingtips, called "sharklets". The existing aircraft are referred to as "ceo" by Airbus, meaning "current engine option".
