Aer Lingus takes delivery of first A320neo aircraft


Aer Lingus took delivery of its first Airbus A320neo aircraft (registration EI-NSA, named Saint Thomas), which will go into service on Wednesday 28th September and operate Aer Lingus flight EI152 from Dublin to London Heathrow.

There is a greater density of seats (186) on the A320neo aircraft resulting lower fuel emissions per seat/passenger on board.

This is the first of two new Airbus A320neo aircraft that Aer Lingus has leased from CDB Aviation, with the second aircraft also joining the fleet this week. The aircraft will be part of Aer Lingus’ shorthaul fleet, predominantly operating London Heathrow routes. They replace two previous generation aircraft, Airbus A320ceo, which will be retired from the fleet.
