AirAsia has made the largest ever order for the Airbus A320 family, by ordering a massive 200 Airbus A320neo (New Engine Option).

The aircraft are to be  powered by the CFM International Leap engine.

AirAsia’s already has another 175 A320s of the “standard” version on order and still intends to take delivery of those. Airbus does not permits  orders for the standard A320 to be converted to the A320neo, because of structural differences between the two versions.
