South African Airways has selected International Aero Engines V2500 powerplants for its 26 Airbus A320 family aircraft on order. The Johannesburg-based carrier ordered 15 A320s and 11 A319s in March 2002, but has only now firmed up its engine choice. The airline will take delivery of its first A319, which will replace its Boeing 737-200s, this year. IAE values the order at more than $350 million.
