Video: AirAsia to be first operator of Airbus A320 fitted with ‘Sharklets’ wing-tips

Malaysian low cost carrier AirAsia, the world’s largest customer for the Airbus A320, will become the first operator ‘Sharklets’ fitted A320s when they take delivery of the first A320 equipped with these fuel-saving wing-tip devices at the end of this year.

The carrier has ordered a total of 375 single aisle aircraft, comprising 200 A320neo and 175 A320ceo, of which 103 have been delivered to date.

The first Indian carrier to operate the ‘Sharklet’ A320 remains a toss-up between IndiGo and GoAir, though the latter is thought to have the edge.
