This week is Shark Week, so we thought it only fitting to share a photo of Technical Operations crewmembers installing Sharklets on an A320 aircraft at our JFK Hangar! This installation was the fourth of five retrofit modifications we will complete for A320 aircraft already in our fleet. A320 deliveries from this point forward will come with Sharklets installed at the factory.
No need for to fear shark bites! Sharklets are wing tip devices that improve the aerodynamics of Airbus aircraft and significantly cut fuel burn and emissions by up to four percent.
