Airbus says it will launch A320neo early

New fuel-saving version of the A320 to appear in October 2015

Airbus has announced that it will release its A320neo aircraft six months earlier than planned, making it available in October 2015. Demand for the new fuel-saving version of the A320 is behind the decision, the manufacturer says. Another possible reason is that Airbus’ rival Boeing is currently considering whether to start production on its 737 passenger aircraft. The stakes are high as these two types of planes compete in the biggest segment of the market, worth around $1.7 trillion (€1.2 trillion) over 20 years.
A version of the A320neo’s “lead development engine”, the PW1100G turbofan being developed by the US-based company Pratt & Whitney, may now also be used on Airbus’ A350s.
