- International Airlines Group said it had converted two of the 100 Airbus A320neo options it announced in August 2013 into firm orders for Iberia.

The aircraft would be delivered in 2021 and used to replace two A320ceos in the airline's shorthaul fleet.

They would be powered by CFM LEAP-1A26 engines.

'These modern, fuel efficient aircraft will bring both cost efficiencies and environmental benefits to Iberia's fleet,' the company said.
