[Avionics Magazine 11-18-2016] Japan’s Peach Aviation has signed a firm order with Airbus for the purchase of 10 A320neo and three A320ceo. Peach Aviation’s Managing Director and CEO Shinichi Inoue and Fabrice Bregier, Airbus president and CEO, announced the order on Nov. 18 at a signing ceremony in Tokyo.

“Our A320 fleet is growing as our route network expands, not only in the domestic market but also to various Asian cities,” said Inoue, who believes the order will help expand Peach Aviation’s competitive edge in Japan.

The newly ordered aircraft will join an existing A320 family fleet at Peach currently comprising 18 A320ceo aircraft, with another two on order. With the addition of the A320neo, the airline will become the first Low Cost Carrier (LCC) in Japan to operate the latest member of the popular A320 family.
