SWISS has taken delivery of its first Airbus A320neo family aircraft.
The Airbus A320neo accommodates 180 passengers in Business and Economy line Class.
SWISS will receive a total of 25 new aircraft of the Airbus A320neo family (the “neo” stands for “New Engine Option”) between now and the end of 2024: seventeen A320neos and eight of the larger A321neo version.
The airline will be deploying its Airbus A320neos on its short- and medium-haul routes of up to 4,200 kilometres within Europe and to and from destinations in North Africa and the Middle East.
SWISS’s new Airbus A320neo features
A newly developed seat that enhances passengers’ travel comfort.
With their ergonomic pressure distribution over the backrest and the seat cushion, the new seats deliver a pleasanter sitting experience. And the innovative horizontal placement of the literature pocket above the seat table also provides more personal space.
Lower fuel consumption and lower noise emissions
The Airbus A320neo consumes some 20 per cent less fuel than comparable aircraft of the older generation. This is thanks to the advanced technology of its Pratt & Whitney engines and its aerodynamic “sharklet” wingtip extensions.An innovative seat for greater travel comfort
