Aer Lingus Takes Delivery of Their First Airbus A320neo
Aer Lingus has taken delivery of their first of two Airbus A320neos on lease from CDB Aviation, with the second to be received later this week. The aircraft will join the carrier’s short-haul fleet, predominantly serving London Heathrow.
On Monday (September 26, 2022), Aer Lingus announced that they have received their first of two Airbus A320neos on lease from CDB Aviation. The carrier will receive their second A320neo later this week, and the two aircraft will replace two A320ceos which will be retired from Aer Lingus’ fleet. The new aircraft will join the airline’s short-haul fleet, predominantly serving London Heathrow routes. These next generation aircraft will support the carrier’s sustainability program, as part of IAG’s commitment to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050, as well as the Group’s commitment to powering 10 percent of their flights with SAF by 2030.
Aer Lingus’ new A320neo, registration EI-NSA, has been Christened ‘Saint Thomas’, and will enter service on Wednesday, September 28, 2022, operating as flight EI152 from Dublin to London Heathrow. Celebrating the inaugural flight, Aer Lingus will offset the carbon emissions from the flight on behalf of all onboard guests.
