LONDON, U.K. — International Airlines Group (IAG) is converting 12 of the A320neo family options announced in August 2013 into firm orders for A320neos and A321neos. The Group is also ordering a further 25 A320neo family aircraft with the option to purchase 50 additional aircraft.

The exact mix of A320neos and A321neos will be decided closer to the delivery dates.

The firm aircraft will be delivered between 2025 and 2028 and will be used to replace A320ceo family aircraft in the Group´s short-haul fleet.

The addition of those latest generation, more fuel-efficient A320neos is an important step towards IAG meeting its climate commitments.

The fleet order is subject to approval by IAG shareholders.
