Viva Aerobus Takes Delivery of First Airbus A320neo

Viva Aerobus has taken delivery of its first Airbus A320neo.

 Viva Aerobus became an Airbus customer in 2013 when it placed the biggest order for Airbus in Mexican history for 52 A320 Family aircraft, including 40 A320neo.

 Today, Viva Aerobus operates 20 A320 aircraft and has nearly completed its transition to become an all-Airbus operator by year end.

The Viva Aerobus A320neo is powered by Pratt & Whitney Pure Power PW1100-JM engines. The aircraft is configured with Airbus Space-Flex cabin seating up to 186 passengers.

The A320neo Family incorporates latest technologies including new generation engines and Sharklet wing tip devices, which Airbus says together deliver more than 15% in fuel savings from day one and 20% by 2020.

The arrival of the A320neo is a historic milestone in the transformation of the new Viva Aerobus, said Juan Carlos Zuazua, CEO of Viva Aerobus. With this first A320neo we are one step closer to reaching our year-end goal of becoming an all-Airbus operator and offering our passengers the youngest aircraft fleet in all of Latin America.
