Airbus A320 neo is one of members of the A320 family produced by Airbus. Inheriting advanced features from the A320 family, the Airbus A320neo version is always the choice of many airlines.

The Airbus A320neo is an aircraft developed with the new engine of the narrow-body Airbus A320 aircraft. Its name means "new engine option" with the choice of either CFM International LEAP-1A or Pratt & Whitney PW1000G engines. Today this aircraft has been changed to Airbus A320ceo for current engine options. The A320neo family is built on the previous A319, A320 and A321 types.
