In 2011 Airbus launched the A320 NEO (New Engine Option) family, the old models being renamed CEO (Current Engine Option). As the name suggests, the main difference between the CEO and NEO are new engines, the aircraft being powered by the CFM LEAP-1A and Pratt & Whitney PW1100G. The other main changes are aerodynamic with the installation of "Sharklet" blended winglets.
The cockpit of the NEO is the same as the CEO.
