Citilink places firm order with Airbus for A320neo aircraft

Garuda Indonesia subsidiary Citilink has placed a firm order with Airbus for 25 A320neo aircraft. The contract represents the first direct purchase by Citilink from Airbus.

Citilink already operates a fleet of 12 leased A320s on its domestic network.

The A320neo aircraft incorporates new engines and large Sharklet wing-tip devices and is expected to deliver fuel savings of 15 per cent and a double-digit reduction in NOx emissions, as well as reduce engine noise.
