In the race towards aircraft fuel efficiency and money saving, Easyjet has a new, more efficient Airbus A320 aircraft to add to its fleet.
Rather than going in Ryanair’s direction of slowing flying times down to save on fuel, this more aerodynamic plane will help to cut the airline’s annual £1.2bn fuel bill. Also helping to save on fuel costs are the new lighter seats, 26% lighter than previous designs, and lightweight trolleys.
EasyJet customer director Peter Duffy said: “Flying the most efficient planes enables us to realise significant savings which is good news for passengers as it allows us to offer low fares – even when fuel prices are at historic highs.
“Our passengers will also notice the difference of the new, ergonomically designed seat which provides them with more space due to its clever design.”
