Japan’s newest airline A&F Aviation to launch services with A320s
A&F Aviation, the new Japanese airline recently established by All Nippon Airways (ANA) and First Eastern Investment Group (First Eastern), has selected Airbus A320 aircraft to start low cost services from Kansai International Airport, Osaka.
A fleet of ten A320 aircraft, leased from GECAS, will seat 180 passengers each in a single-class layout. The jets will be powered by CFM International engines.
ANA became Airbus' second customer in Japan when it ordered ten A320s in 1987. The aircraft entered service in early 1991.
