Airbus: India's GoAir to buy 72 A320neos

Airbus says Indian airline GoAir has ordered 72 of its A320neo fuel efficient aircraft.

Airbus says the revamped version of its workhorse single-aisle A320 is 15 percent more fuel efficient than rivals like the Boeing 737 thanks to a new engine and modified wingtips.

Airbus has racked up over 700 orders for the A320neo since it began marketing the aircraft last December as airlines seek to counter mounting fuel prices with newer more fuel efficient aircraft.
