Frontier Airlines Takes Delivery of First Airbus A320neo

Frontier Airlines has taken delivery of its first Airbus A320neo.

Frontier is the first U.S. airline to receive an A320neo with CFM engines, and the aircraft is the first of 80 A320neo Family aircraft the low-cost carrier has ordered.

Were excited to receive our first A320neo, said Barry Biffle, President and CEO Frontier Airlines. The efficiency of the A320neo will help us lower costs even more and pass those savings along to our customers.

Each of the Frontiers A320neo Family aircraft will feature lightweight composite Sharklets, 2.4-meter/94-inch tall wing-tip devices and new CFMs LEAP-1A engines.

In addition to the A320neo just delivered, Frontier currently operates a fleet of 64 Airbus aircraft, including 30 A319s, 24 A320s and 10 A321s.

The airlines current backlog of Airbus aircraft is comprised of 18 A319neo, 2 A320ceo, 61 A320neo and 6 A321ceo.
