Royal Brunei Airlines has placed a firm order of seven Airbus A320neo aircraft, plus three options, the European aircraft manufacturer announced on 6 May 2014.

Featuring a two class layout, the aircraft will be operated on the airline’s regional network linking Bandar Seri Begawan with destinations across Asia. The aircraft will be powered by Pratt & Whitney PW1100G-JM engines.

Royal Brunei already flies aircraft of the A320 family, like the A319 illustrating this news story. Compared to the current fleet the new Airbus’s have up to 15 per cent les fuel usage, plus better comfort on board for its passengers.
