This represents the first order Israir has placed for the V2500 on the first A320s the airline has purchased.

The V2500 is available in seven different thrust settings, from 22,000 to 33,000 lbs., to power the Airbus A319, A320 and A321 family of aircraft as well as the A319 Corporate Jet.

The V2500 SelectOne build standard delivers an additional 1% fuel burn advantage, along with a corresponding reduction in CO2 emissions. It improves time on-wing by up to 20% and is compliant with the CAEP/6 NOx standards. It entered service in October 2008.
