Airbus Updates No.446

Japanese Firms To Work On Airbus A320neo Engine

Japan's IHI, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Kawasaki Heavy Industries said on Wednesday they would help develop an engine for the A320neo aircraft from Airbus.
The three will join US engine maker Pratt & Whitney and Germany's MTU Aero Engines in a team developing an engine for the A320neo, an updated version of the popular A320 jet, the companies said in a statement.
CFM International, a French-US engine maker, is developing a rival engine for the aircraft.
Airbus hopes to boost its sales with the A320neo, which it says will offer fuel savings of 15 percent when it enters service in late 2015.
