SriLankan Airlines has a total fleet of Airbus aircraft. The airline received its first Airbus aircraft in 1992, the Airbus A320-200 began flying to the airline's regional routes in Maldives, Pakistan and southern India. On 23 February 2015, SriLankan Airlines finalized a deal with Air Lease Corporation and AerCap to acquire two Airbus A321neo aircraft, one from each leasing firm.
The Airbus A330-200 and Airbus A330-300 aircraft were delivered later on. The average age of the SriLankan fleet is 9.6 years. As of April 2021, the SriLankan Airlines fleet consists of the following aircraft:
The Airbus A320 is one of the most popular airliners in the world with over 6000 sold. Comfort is the best synonym to describe the Airbus A320, due to its large cabin. This airbus already has state-of-the-art technology putting it at the top of the fleet's efficiency. The version that originated the whole family, is considered the standard of the category. It has a unique corridor and is the one that everyone compares to.
The Airbus A320 family are narrow-body airliners designed and produced by Airbus. The A320 was launched in March 1984, first flew on 22 February 1987, and was introduced in April 1988 by Air France. The first member of the family was followed by the longer A321, the shorter A319, and the even shorter A318.
The A320neo (new engine option) is one of many upgrades introduced by Airbus to help maintain its A320 product line’s position as the world’s most advanced and fuel-efficient single-aisle aircraft family. The baseline A320neo jetliner has a choice of two new-generation engines (the PurePower PW1100G-JM from Pratt and Whitney and the LEAP-1A from CFM International) and features large, fuel-saving wingtip devices known as Sharklets.
Due to its 95 per cent airframe commonality with the A320ceo (current engine option) version, Airbus’ A320neo jetliner fits seamlessly into existing A320 Family fleets worldwide – which is a key factor for the company’s customers and operators. For the A320neo – which was delivered to customers beginning in 2016 – Airbus expanded seating capacity with optimised cabin space and increased exit limits, which allows the A320neo to accommodate up to 194 passengers in a high-density configuration. The A320neo also offers significant environmental performance with nearly 50% reduction in noise footprint compared to previous generation aircraft.
The Airbus A321 is a member of the Airbus A320 family of short to medium range, narrow-body, commercial passenger twin engine jet airliners and carries 185 to 236 passengers.
As the longest-fuselage member of Airbus’ best-selling, single-aisle A320 Family, the A321’s cabin offers passengers even more space in which to relax and enjoy the flight. Able to comfortably seat anywhere from a typical 170 to 200 passengers in a standard two-class cabin to 220 travellers in a more high-density layout, the A321 – with a wider cabin than any of its competitors – continues to define the meaning of single-aisle comfort in operations around the globe.
The industry-leading quality and efficiency of Airbus’ A320 Family – of which the A321 is a member – has been further enhanced with its new engine option (NEO) jetliner versions. For the A321neo, Airbus expanded seating capacity with optimised use of cabin space, increased exit limits and a new cabin door configuration. This “Cabin-Flex” option increased the jetliner’s maximum capacity to 244 seats, while still providing high levels of passenger comfort.
Airbus is offering airlines brand-new options for configuring the generous floor space offered by its A321neo, allowing more flexibility and thus increasing the total number of available seats. These new cabin options capitalize on recent innovations in cabin monuments and seat design that enable more efficient use of cabin space without compromising passenger comfort.
The Airbus A330 is a wide-body airliner made by Airbus. In the mid-1970s, Airbus conceived several derivatives of the A300, its first airliner, and developed the A330 twinjet in parallel with the A340 quadjet. In June 1987, Airbus launched both designs with their first orders.
The A330 Family – which includes Airbus’ highly-efficient A330-200 – offers the most spacious cabin of any wide-body aircraft in its category, allowing for a range of cabin interior possibilities. The A330-200’s seat pitch can be adapted in units of one inch, while galleys, lavatories and stowage areas can be located in different numbers, groupings and locations – providing excellent versatility for operators of this wide-body Airbus jetliner.
Benefitting from over 20 years of continuous incremental innovation, the A330 is the most modern and reliable family of aircraft in the sky. Typically flying between 210 and 250 passengers, it can be tailored to carry as many as 406 – providing a quality solution for every route today and in the future.
Serving the biggest megacities and smallest dream islands alike, Airbus’ A330-300 continues to please passengers and airlines around the world. As a twin-engine twin-aisle wide-body that can carry from 250 to 440 passengers, it is flexible enough to offer a range of seating options while consistently delivering high-quality comfort to all those on board. Its cabin also is one of the quietest in the skies, creating a calm environment for an entire flight.
No comparably-sized aircraft can match the cost-efficiency and profitability of Airbus’ modern A330-300 jetliner, which boasts significantly lower operating costs per seat than its nearest competitor. The A330-300 has the versatility to cover all ranges – from short-haul to true long-haul – while accommodating between 250 and 290 passengers in a comfortable, quiet cabin with a typical three-class layout. In addition, the jetliner’s designed-in flexibility allows operators to integrate Airbus’ innovative crew rest facilities without sacrificing revenue passenger seats.
