15-Jan-2013 7:40 AM

Citilink, the low-cost subsidiary of Garuda Indonesia, placed (14-Jan-2013) a firm order with Airbus for 25 A320neo aircraft. The contract, signed in Dec-2012, represents the first direct purchase by Citilink from Airbus. It follows an order placed in 2011 by Garuda Indonesia for 15 A320ceo and 10 A320neo aircraft for operation by Citilink. Citilink already operates a fleet of 12 leased A320s on its fast growing domestic network. Citilink CEO Arif Wibowo said, “The A320 has played a key role in the recent success of Citilink. The low operating costs, fast turnaround times and strong passenger appeal of the A320 make it perfect for our operation and we are looking forward to the even greater efficiencies that will come with the NEO.” [more - original PR]
