Aegean Airlines, the largest airline of Greece added another two Airbus A320ceo to a previous order for five A320s placed in September 2007.
All aircraft will be equipped with so-called “sharklets” wing tip devices to reduce fuel consumption in flight. The A320ceos will be powered by IAE V2500 engines. The aircraft will also be the first A320s in Aegean’s fleet to feature the enhanced take-off weight capability of up to 78 tonnes, thus enabling the carrier to expand its route network with even longer range operations.
Aegean Airlines, a member of Star Alliance, was named for the fourth year in a row the Best Regional Airline in Europe at the 2014 World Airline Awards. Aegean Airlines operates to date an all-Airbus single-aisle fleet of 36 Airbus A320 family aircraft including 17 directly purchased. Aegean currently serves 205 international destinations from its eight bases in Greece.
