GoAir has firmed up a contract for 72 A320neo aircraft, following the Memorandum of Understanding they signed during last year’s Farnborough International Airshow. The agreement was reached on December 30th, 2016 and doubles GoAir’s existing order for 72 A320neos, brining the order to a total of 144 aircraft.
GoAir took delivery of its first A320neo in June 2016 and now operates a fleet of 23 aircraft. With the induction of the A320neo, GoAir will expand its network and offer fliers better connectivity and continue its growth as one of India’s preferred LCCs.
“The A320neo provides the latest technical innovations and unbeatable economics. We are happy to offer our passengers the most modern and comfortable cabins. This new order will further strengthen our network by adding more domestic and international routes in the years to come,” said GoAir Managing Director & CEO, Wolfgang Prock-Schauer.
“We are delighted that GoAir has renewed its confidence in Airbus. The A320neo offers unbeatable operating costs and GoAir’s passengers will continue to enjoy the unrivalled comfort that only Airbus aircraft offer,” said Airbus Commercial Aircraft Chief Operating Officer – Customers, John Leahy. “By doubling its order to 144 aircraft, GoAir will benefit from a greatly expanded network.”
GoAir was the first airline to use A320neo in the Spaceflex configuration with 186 seats without compromising on passenger leg room and comfort.
