The Spanish low-cost carrier Vueling has chosen Messier-Bugatti-Dowty (Safran) wheels and carbon brakes for its fleet of A320 twinjets.

The contract covers the support of wheels and brakes on Vueling's current Airbus single-aisle fleet in service (88 aircraft). It also includes 30 aircraft on order, as well as any upcoming A320ceo family order placed by the Spanish airline.

Messier-Bugatti-Dowty's carbon brake has largely proven its performance and reliability over a number of years. Featuring much better oxidation resistance than the competition, it also provides significant weight savings, therefore contributing to a reduction in fuel consumption, allowing operators to reduce both costs and CO2 emissions.

Vincent Mascré, CEO of Messier-Bugatti-Dowty, said,"We are delighted that Vueling has once again chosen us. This contract consolidates our leadership in the wheel and brake market for the A320 family, and shows that our carbon brake continues to be the preferred choice of low-cost carriers."
