The A320neo is the new engine option for the A320 Family, which will be operational from 2015. The aircraft are equipped with the latest generation of reactors and "Sharklets", large wing devices, together, will reduce the 15% fuel consumption. Nell'A320neo NOx emissions are lower than the 50% than the threshold recommended by the CAEP / 6, and noise emissions are greatly reduced. To date, the A320 Family has recorded sales of over 8.500 aircraft, including more than 5.100 already delivered to over 365 customers and operators worldwide.

Airbus is delighted that the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has taken the first important step towards creating an international regime on CO2 emissions from civil aviation. With the effective entry into force in 2013, This Act will allow CO2 to measure the relative performance of different types of CO2 to the civil aircraft, by private jet aircraft of larger capacity in the market, l'A380. This law will take into account the design characteristics of the different categories of aircraft, where the load and the autonomy.
This week, in St. Petersburg, Committee on Aviation Environmental Protection (CAEP) ICAO has reached an agreement that aims to define a common way to measure performance in terms of CO2 aircraft.
The purpose of this rule is to encourage manufacturers to produce aircraft that produce less CO2 (as the A380, l'or l'A320neo A350XWB) since with reactors that consume less fuel (such as reactors and NEO XWB) or of innovative devices capable of allowing a greater aerodynamic (such as. gli "Shark Lets') or that use of advanced materials (such as composites or light alloys).
