Airbus Introduces Sharklets Retrofit

Airbus is set to offer its Sharklets wing-tip devices for the in-service A320 fleet. The aircraft manufacturer has confirmed it sees a potential market for the Sharklet retrofit on some 4,000 in-service A320-family aircraft and has secured commitments for the retrofit from airlines for around 200 A320s. One such airline is Jetblue. The retrofit uses the same 2.4m-tall Sharklets that will be seen on the A320neo.
