TOULOUSE, France - Citilink, the low cost unit of Garuda Indonesia, has taken delivery of its first A320neo at Airbus headquarters in Toulouse, France. The aircraft is the first of 35 A320neo set to enter service with the carrier.

Citilink has selected CFM Leap-1A engines to power its A320neo fleet, which will be operated on its domestic network, and new international services to China and the Middle East.

Seating 180 passengers in a single class layout, the A320neo joins an existing fleet of 44 A320ceo aircraft flying with the carrier.

The A320neo "new engine option" incorporates many innovations, including latest generation engines and large Sharklet wing-tip devices, which together deliver more than 15 percent in fuel savings from day one and 20 percent by 2020 with further cabin innovations.

TOULOUSE, France - Air Caraïbes has taken delivery of a new Airbus A350-900, the first French airline to operate the type. The aircraft, leased from AerCap, was delivered during a ceremony held at the Airbus Delivery Center in Toulouse on February 28. It will take off at 14:00 heading for Paris Orly Sud before embarking on its first commercial flight to Pointe-a-Pitre and Fort-de-France on March 2.

Air Caraïbes plans to operate its A350 XWB alongside the A330s it already has in service on its Paris/Caribbean routes. This A350-900 can accommodate 389 passengers in a three-class configuration (18 in Business, 45 in Premium Economy and 326 in Economy). The "Airspace by Airbus" cabin, combined with its new lighting system, reduces the effects of jet lag on long-haul flights, Airbus says.

To date, orders for 821 A350 XWBs have been placed with Airbus by 44 customers around the world, making this one of the most successful programs ever in the long-range aircraft segment.

MELBOURNE - Lufthansa Technik AG has signed a Cyclean Engine Wash contract with Qantas, whereby engine cleaning will be carried out on CFM56-7 engines of the Qantas Boeing 737 fleet. The program began successfully in January. Engine washing is initially taking place exclusively in Melbourne, Australia.

The engine wash is being carried out by 145 Aviation Services, part of the Permagard Group. Lufthansa Technik commissioned this Australian MRO company as service provider for Cyclean Engine Wash in Melbourne at the start of 2016. 145 Aviation Services has been operating a mobile Cyclean system since then. The vehicle can also be flexibly deployed at other locations in the Melbourne area.

Following this successful launch in Melbourne, Lufthansa Technik plans to continually expand its network of Cyclean stations around the Australia. Further stations are already being planned for Sydney, Brisbane and Perth.

Lufthansa Technik claims that Cyclean Engine Wash is up to 70 percent quicker than convention engine cleaning methods and can be carried out without restriction anywhere on the airport site. The new engine wash can be used on all contemporary engine models from the leading manufacturers General Electric, Rolls-Royce, Pratt & Whitney, CFMI, and IAE. To date, more than 80,000 engine washes have been performed worldwide for more than 40 airline customers using Cyclean Engine Wash.
