AWAS announced today that it has delivered one new A320 passenger aircraft to Vueling, the Spanish low cost airline. This third A320 delivery from AWAS is from the lessor’s existing new order pipeline and is factory-fitted with advanced Sharklets.

This advanced end-of-wing Sharklet system has been developed by Airbus to save airlines up to $270k on fuel per aircraft each year along with several higher performance and lower maintenance benefits. Importantly, Sharklets can also save over 730t less CO2 emissions annually per aircraft.

Vueling has introduced a total of 53 new routes across its network, 32 of which depart from Barcelona-El Prat, Vueling’s main hub and HQ. The airline is expanding internationally with principal growth markets in Germany with six new destinations (Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Dresden, Hannover, Dortmund and Stuttgart), the Nordic countries (Oslo, Helsinki, Oslo, Gothenburg) and Africa in Algeria, Oran and Algiers, Banjul in Gambia and Fez, Casablanca, Tangier and Nador in Morocco.
