Britain, Farnborough, July 20, 2022 – Following shareholder approval, easyJet has announced a definitive order for 56 A320neo Family aircraft. The purchase is a component of easyJet’s fleet upgrade, cost- and sustainability-related business improvements. The arrangement calls for the conversion of 18 A320neo aircraft to the bigger A321neo variant.

EasyJet’s CFO, Kenton Jarvis, stated: “We believe this order will enhance the business’s excellent returns and the accomplishment of our strategic goals. The adoption of the more efficient new technology aircraft is a key step on EasyJet’s journey to net zero emissions, and the new aircraft are in line with the airline’s sustainability policy. In addition, the new aircraft are far quieter than the older ones they are replacing, with a noise footprint that is half as large.
