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.
