Colombia-based Avianca Holding’s owner and largest shareholder Synergy Aerospace, has signed a MOU with Airbus for 62 A320neo family aircraft.The agreement paves the way for Avianca Brazil to base its fleet renewal and network growth strategy on the A320neo family.

“These 62 A320neo aircraft will make it possible for Avianca Brazil to take an important leap toward growing and modernizing its fleet, while improving passenger experience,” Synergy chairman German Efromovich said. “Thanks to their excellent eco-efficiency, reliability and comfort, the A320neo family will allow Synergy to strengthen its position in Latin America by offering Avianca Brazil passengers the best single aisle product available.”
