Tokyo. 18 November 2016 . Airbus signed an order for the purchase of 10 A320neo and three A320ceo with Japan’s Peach Aviation. The order was announced at a signing ceremony in Tokyo recently, attended by Shinichi Inoue, Managing Director and CEO, Peach Aviation and Fabrice Brégier, Airbus President and CEO.
“Our A320 fleet is growing as our route network expands, not only in the domestic market but also to various Asian cities,” said Shinichi Inoue. “By introducing the A320neo to our fleet we will enhance even further our profitability while continuing to offer our passengers greater comfort with 18-inch wide seats.” We believe that the A320neo will strengthen our position in the competitive Japanese aviation market.”
The newly-ordered aircraft will join an existing A320 Family fleet at Peach currently comprising 18 A320ceo and another two on order. With the addition of the A320neo, the airline will become the first low cost carrier (LCC) in Japan to operate the latest member of the popular A320 Family.
“We are pleased that Peach Aviation has placed this additional order for the A320 Family,” said Fabrice Brégier. “This further strengthens the position of the A320 Family as the preferred choice of airlines in the low cost sector in Japan. We are honoured by the confidence Peach Aviation has once again placed in our products and are sure that the A320 Family will contribute to the airline’s ongoing success as it expands in the domestic and regional markets.
