Atlantic Airways, the Faroe Islands’ flag carrier, has taken delivery of its first A320neo. Leased from Air Lease Corporation (ALC: NYSE: AL), this aircraft is powered by CFMI LEAP-1A engines and is configured in an all-economy cabin layout.

With its new Airbus fleet member Atlantic Airways will further develop its European network. The airline, an Airbus customer since 2008, already operates an all-Airbus fleet of three A320 Family aircraft (currently two A319ceos and one A320ceo). In addition, the airline also recently placed a firm order for two additional A320neos.
