BLAGNAC (BNS): South African Airways has ordered five additional Airbus A320 aircraft, from Airbus, an aircraft manufacturing subsidiary of EADS.

This order, combined with the airlines recent lease agreement for six new A330s from Air Castle, will deliver a modern, comfortable, reliable and cost-efficient fleet for South African Airways’ domestic, regional and long-haul services. South African Airways already operates a fleet of 11 A319s, six A340-200s, six A340-300s and nine A340-600s.

“The A320 is the most modern and efficient single aisle aircraft available and with continuous improvements we are strengthening the aircraft’s leadership position. It will be a key enabler in South African Airways drive for greater efficiency,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, as quoted in a news report by Airbus.

The A320 Family (A318, A319, A320 and A321) is recognised as the benchmark single-aisle aircraft family. With more than 6,500 aircraft sold, and some 4,200 aircraft delivered to more than 310 customers and operators worldwide, the A320 Family is the world’s best-selling single-aisle aircraft family.

The aircraft, to be delivered from 2013, will be powered by IAE engines.
