The Athens-based airline SKY Express placed an order for four A320neo aircraft and became a new customer for Airbus. In addition, the Greek airline recently leased two A320neos from ACG Aviation Capital Group and on that occasion joined the global list of 430 Airbus operators. The airline selected CFM-International’s Leap 1A engines to power their planes.
The owner of SKY Express and head of the IOGR group of companies, Ioannis Grylos, said: “Our cooperation with Airbus through the acquisition of six new ne320neo aircraft fulfills our ambition to modernize our fleet and move our company into a new era . The combination of the most advanced technology with the fuel efficiency that this type of aircraft offers are elements that fit perfectly with SKY Express’s business plan for a contemporary fleet that respects the environment and offers its passengers safe and high quality services ”.
The A320neo Family includes the latest technologies including new generation engines and sharklets, which together provide a 20% reduction in fuel consumption and 50% less noise compared to previous generation aircraft. At the end of September 2020, the A320neo Family had received 7,450 firm orders from more than 110 customers worldwide.
