Sichuan Airlines operates an all Airbus fleet of 135 aircraft, including 123 A320 Family aircraft and 12 A330 Family aircraft.

 The partnership between Sichuan Airlines and Airbus dates back to 1995 when the airline introduced the A320, becoming the first to operate an Airbus fly-by-wire aircraft on the Chinese mainland.

It was also the first operator to take delivery of a Tianjin assembled A320 Family aircraft.

 In 2010, Sichuan Airlines received its first A330 aircraft and in 2016 it signed a Letter of Intent for leasing four A350-900s. In 2018 the airline signed an agreement with Airbus to order ten A350-900s.
