Qatar Airways selects A320 neo for short- to medium-haul fleet

Qatar Airways has selected the A320 neo as the reference aircraft for expanding its short- to medium-haul fleet and has increased its order for the A380.

The agreement, signed at the 2011 Dubai Air Show, is a firm contract for 50 A320 neo aircraft and five additional A380s.

The A320 neo is an option for the A320 series and incorporates new engines and large ’Sharklet’ wing-tip devices, which together will deliver 15 per cent in fuel savings, which is said to represent some 3,600 tonnes less CO2 per aircraft per year.
