Sichuan Airlines, the largest all-Airbus-fleet carrier in China, has taken delivery of its' first A320neo. The airline now operates 126 Airbus aircraft including 116 A320 Family aircrafts and 10 A330 Family aircraft.

Powered by Pratt & Whitney Pure Power engines, Sichuan's A320neo aircraft features a comfortable two-class cabin layout, (8 business and 150 economy class seats). The airline will operate the new aircraft on its domestic and international routes.

The partnership between Sichuan Airlines and Airbus dates back to 1995 when the airline introduced the A320, becoming the first airline to operate an Airbus fly-by-wire aircraft in mainland China. Sichuan Airlines was also the first operator to take Tianjin assembled Airbus aircraft when it received an A320 from Airbus A320 Family Assembly Line in Tianjin in 2009. In 2010, Sichuan Airlines received its first A330 aircraft. In 2016, Sichuan Airlines also signed a Letter of Intent for leasing four A350-900s.

The A320neo Family incorporates the very latest technologies including new generation engines and Sharklets, which together deliver more than 15 percent fuel savings at entry into service and up to 20 percent by 2020. With more than 5,000 orders received from over 90 customers since its launch in 2010, the A320neo Family has captured some 60 percent market share.
