The company International Airlines Group, or IAG, has ordered 62 new short-haul Airbus 320 aircraft, for use by their subsidiary company, Vueling, which will allow the airline to replace some of its current fleet of A320´s and expand their business.

Technical aircraft fans might be interested to know that the order comprises of 30 aircraft of the A320ceo type, and 32 of them are A320neo´s, all to be delivered between 2015 and 2020, with a reservation order for another possible 58 additional options.

In addition, IAG has secured another 100 options for the A320neo aircraft, that could be used by any of the airlines in the group, British Airways, Iberia or Vueling, which would replace the current fleet.

IAG Chief Executive, Willie Walsh, has argued that the order, which is subject to approval by the shareholders of IAG, demonstrates the benefits that the merger provides to all group airlines.

Walsh has argued that the new aircraft will allow Vueling to continue the expansion of its business, profitably focus on growth markets, and replace part of its aging fleet with modern, more fuel-efficient aircraft.
