Jetstar Japan Takes Delivery Of Its First A320 With Sharklets

Carrier Becomes The First Operator Of The New Fuel Saving Devices In Japan

Low-cost Japanese carrier Jetstar Japan has taken delivery of its first Airbus A320 aircraft equipped with "Sharklet" fuel-saving wing tip devices, becoming the first Japanese carrier for the type.

"Sharklets" are an option on new-build A320 Family aircraft, and standard on all members of the A320neo Family. The new wingtip devices are about 8 feet tall, replacing A320’s current wingtip fence. They offer the flexibility to A320 Family operators of either adding around 100 nautical miles more range or increased payload capability.

“We are very happy to be the first operator of the latest version of the cost efficient A320 in Japan” Jetstar Japan President Miyuki Suzuki said. “The new "Sharklet"-equipped A320 will help us to save on fuel costs and allow us to continue to offer low fares to our customer.” 

“We are delighted that Jetstar Japan has joined a growing list of operators of our A320 equipped with new fuel-saving "Sharklet" wing-tip devices”, said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. “With a four percent fuel burn reduction, the A320 with "Sharklets" makes Jetstar Japan one of the most fuel efficient airlines and gives it huge competitive advantages in one of the world’s most challenging markets.”
