The Airbus A320neo is a series of enhanced versions of A320 family under development by Airbus. The letters "neo" stand for "New Engine Option". The main change is the use of the larger and more efficient engines which results in 15% less fuel consumption, 8% lower operating costs, less noise production and a reduction of NOx by at least 10% compared to the A320 series according to Airbus. Customers will have a choice of either the CFM International LEAP-X or the Pratt & Whitney PW1000G. The airframe will also receive some modifications, including the addition of "Sharklet" wingtips to reduce drag and interiour modifications for the passengers comfort such as larger luggage spaces and an improved air purification system.

Initially derived from Skyop's A320-family project, the Airbus A320neo for FlightGear is a new fully updated version, wich aims to provide a real aircraft flying experience.
