Spirit Airlines has signed a
Memorandum of Understanding with Airbus for
up to 100 A320neo Family aircraft.
Once finalised, the aircraft will be a mixture
of A319neos, A320neos, and A321neos.
Based in South Florida, Spirit is a rapidly
growing ultra-low-cost carrier.
“This new order represents another milestone for
Spirit,” said Spirit Airlines’ President and CEO Ted Christie.
“The additional aircraft will be used to support Spirit’s growth
as we add new destinations and expand our network across the U.S.,
Latin America, and the Caribbean. We look forward to working with
our valued partners at Airbus to finalise our agreement.”
At the end of September
2019, the A320neo Family had received more than 6,650 firm orders
from nearly 110 customers worldwide.
“The Airbus A320 Family has been a strong
platform for the remarkable success of Spirit over the past
several years,” said Airbus Chief Commercial Officer Christian
Scherer. “The ongoing, enthusiastic spirit the airline
demonstrates in our A320neo Family is most rewarding, and we look
forward to playing a part in the Spirit team’s continued growth
for many, many years to come.”
