The Airbus A320neo is a single aisle, twin-engine jet manufactured by Airbus Industrie, the European consortium. It's part of the Airbus A320 family, the world’s best selling aircraft line. The A320neo has a noise footprint which is nearly 50% less than previous generation aircraft.

Compared to the A320-200, the most notable difference is the ‘Sharklets’ on the wingtips. The ‘Sharklets’ wingtip can reduce up to 4% of fuel burn on longer sectors, corresponding to around 900 tones of CO2 emissions annually per aircraft.

Other less visible differences include a larger engine, with small extensions at the rear of the engine. The aircraft overall delivers 20% fuel savings and CO2 reduction compared to the A320-200.
