GoAir Takes Delivery Of Its First Airbus A320 Equipped With 'Sharklets'

Airplane One Of 20 Ordered By The Carrier In 2006

India’s GoAir, wholly owned by the Wadia Group, has taken delivery of its first "Sharklet" equipped A320 aircraft financed by ACG (Aviation Capital Group) under a sale and leaseback arrangement which will see the Aircraft added to ACG's growing portfolio of Airbus A320 family aircraft. The aircraft is part of an order placed by GoAir for 20 A320ceo in 2006. So far 13 aircraft have been delivered to GoAir making the first "Sharklet" equipped A320 the 14th to join the fleet. All subsequent seven deliveries will be equipped with "Sharklets."

“We already operate one of the youngest and most fuel efficient aircraft fleets anywhere in the world and the introduction of the "Sharklet" will add further efficiency. Our investment in the every latest technology like ""Sharklet"s", and also the A320neo, is a demonstration of our commitment to our customers and to the growth of our valued airline,” said Giorgio De Roni, GoAir CEO.
 
“We are delighted to be partnering GoAir with their fleet expansion and the introduction of the fuel saving "Sharklet". We strive to always have the most modern aircraft in our aircraft portfolio and the A320 equipped with "Sharklets" is a perfect fit,” said Denis Kalscheur, ACG CEO.
 
“The "Sharklets" deliver up to four per cent fuel burn reduction on longer sectors, and this translates into impressive cost savings,” said John Leahy, Chief Operating Officer – Customers. “GoAir passengers can also be confident that on board their "Sharklet" equipped A320s, they’ll be flying the world’s greenest single aisle aircraft.”
 
Due to the very strong customer demand for "Sharklets," all Airbus’ single-aisle final assembly lines (FALs) will be engaged in building A320 Family aircraft with "Sharklets". These FALs are located in Toulouse (France), Hamburg (Germany) and Tianjin (China) and will soon be followed by an additional A320 FAL in Mobile, AL.
