Royal Brunei Airlines has taken delivery of its first A320neo aircraft from Airbus.
The aircraft is the first of seven A320neo ordered by the airline under its single aisle fleet renewal programme.
The airline will operate the aircraft on its extensive regional network.
Powered by CFM International LEAP-1A26 engines, the aircraft features a three class layout with 12 business class seats, 18 economy plus and 120 in the main cabin.
Royal Brunei has been flying A320 Family aircraft since 2003 and currently operates a fleet of six A320ceo jets.
The A320neo Family incorporates the latest technologies including new generation engines and Sharklets, which together deliver at least 15 percent fuel savings at delivery and 20 percent by 2020.
With more than 6,000 orders received from 100 customers, the A320neo Family has captured nearly 60 percent share of the market.
