Azerbaijan Airlines presently operates a fleet of 15 Airbus planes, consisting of four A319ceo, six A320ceo, and two Airbus A340s, along with 3 A320neo that were added at the beginning of this year. The airline's plan is to use more fuel-efficient A320neo Family aircraft to expand its domestic and international flight network.




The Airbus A320neo Family is equipped with the latest technology, including new generation engines and Sharklets, that reduces fuel burn and CO2 emissions by a minimum of 20%. This model is the most sought-after aircraft in the world, with 8,700 orders from 135 customers.
