The current available medium range single-aisle aircraft, Boeing 737 and Airbus A320 have been designed over 20 years ago. Despite design updates, a new aircraft is needed to enter service in 2015. It should be able to fly up to 180 passengers to their destination, with a higher level of comfort while offering a reduction of the traveller’s ecological footprint.
