Airbus Achieves EASA Certification for A320 Sharklets

0 komentar
Airbus earned EASA certification for its fuel-saving Sharklets on its A320 family of aircraft.

The Sharklets are made from composites, and attached to the wing-tips of the A320 to reduce aircraft fuel burn.

Airbus is still waiting to receive certification of the remaining aircraft/engine variants with Sharklets, and said it believes the European airworthiness certification would soon be followed by FAA type certification. Air Asia will become the first airline to operate Sharklet-equipped A320s on commercial flights starting later this month, the company said.

“The certification of Airbus’ Sharklets is a milestone which paves the way for airlines to benefit from savings in fuel of around four percent. That’s better than we’d anticipated,” said Tom Williams, executive vice president of programs at Airbus. “The annual greenhouse gas emission reduction per aircraft equipped with Sharklets will be approximately 1,000 tonnes of CO2 – that’s equivalent to taking 200 cars off the roads.”
