Mexican LCC Viva Aerobus has now taken delivery of their first A320neo, becoming the second North American and Mexican carrier to receive the A320neo. This is the first of 40 A320neos the airline has ordered.
For their aircraft, the airline has chosen the Pratt and Whitney Pure Power PW1100-JM engines.
“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.”
“Airbus is proud to support Viva Aerobus evolve into one of the fastest-growing and most dynamic airlines in Mexico,” said Rafael Alonso, President of Airbus Latin America and the Caribbean. “Mexico’s strong economic growth presents a unique opportunity for airlines such as Viva Aerobus to expand their fleets with the industry’s top performing A320neo to improve their efficiency and environmental footprint”.
