Iberia has decided to stick with the CFM International CFM56 for its recent order for up to 76 more Airbus A320-family aircraft. The airline concluded the order in February for 50 firm orders and 26 options (nine A319s, 36 A320s and 31 A321s), and decided to hold a new engine competition despite the fact that the CFM56 already powers 22 A320s in service with the airline. Deliveries of the new aircraft will begin next year.
