Juneyao Airlines, a Shanghai-based privately-owned carrier, has taken delivery of its first purchased Airbus A320.

Juneyao Airlines currently operates 10 leased Airbus aircraft - two A319s and eight A320s - with 10 more A320s, via operating lease and purchase, due to join the fleet by the end of 2012.

The aircraft, the first of six ordered in June 2007, is powered by CFM56 engines and will accommodate 158 passengers in a two-class configuration, including eight first class seats.

The airline plans to operate the A320 on routes between Shanghai and some of the most popular tourist destinations in China, as well as other destinations in Asia.

"We have been operating Airbus A320 Family aircraft since September 2006 and their high efficiency and low operational costs have helped us win market share on China's most competitive routes. Thanks to our Airbus A320 Family fleet, we have managed to implement our strategic vision: developing our company into an international airline that provides high quality service with an extended network, while ensuring excellent profitability," said Wang Junjin, Chairman of Juneyao Airlines.
