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.
According to Christian Scherer, Chief Commercial Officer and Head of Airbus International, “easyJet has democratised flying for millions of travellers, and we are delighted this latest agreement for 56 A320neo Family aircraft not only future-proofs its growth as traffic recovers, but also lays the foundations for its sustainability journey.”
EasyJet is now the largest airline in the world operating single aisle Airbus aircraft with a fleet of over 300 A320 Family models, including the A319, A320ceo, A320neo, and A321neo. Over 130 European airports in over 31 countries are served by easyJet, which runs more than 1,000 itineraries.
The A320neo Family is equipped with the most recent technologies, such as Sharklets and new generation engines, which collectively save at least 20% on fuel. The A320neo Family is the most popular aircraft in the world, with more than 8,100 orders from more than 130 customers.
