Vueling receives its first enhanced A320 cabin using Airbus Space-Flex concept

Posted 16 March 2015 · Add Comment

Spanish low cost carrier Vueling has taken delivery of the first A320 incorporating the new Vueling cabin configuration.

With the selection of the latest generation seats, Vueling will offer enhanced comfort and more space to its passengers while adding six extra seats.

The new Vueling cabin is equipped with the innovative Airbus Space-Flex module that makes for a more efficient use of the volume at the rear end of the cabin.

Vueling is the first customer benefiting from the new exit limits, which when combined with the Airbus Space-Flex module increases the A320 seating capacity from 180 to 186 seats while retaining the higher comfort level of the Airbus 18” (45,72 cm) wide seat.



This solution not only provides room for more seats but also features a lavatory with full access to Persons with Reduced Mobility. The reconfigurable PRM-friendly lavatory is facilitated via a simple conversion process consisting on converting two Space-Flex lavatories into one Space-Flex PRM in a similar manner as those delivered on an Airbus wide-body aircraft.

The A320ceo, equipped with IAE engines and Sharklets, is part of the 62 A320 Family aircraft (30 A320ceo and 32 A320neo) ordered in August 2013.

Today, the airline operates an all-Airbus fleet of more than 90 A320 Family aircraft on domestic and regional routes to Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.
