Citilink, the low cost unit of Garuda Indonesia, has taken delivery of its first A320neo at Airbus headquarters in Toulouse, France. The aircraft, which arrived in Indonesia on 24th February, is the first of 35 A320neos set to enter service with the carrier.
Citilink has selected CFM Leap-1A engines to power its A320neo fleet, which will be operated on its domestic network and on new international services to China and the Middle East. The carrier is scheduled to receive five aircraft this year. Deliveries are due to be completed by 2021.
Seating 180 passengers in a single-class layout, the A320neo joins the carrier's existing fleet of 44 A320ceo aircraft.
