Spirit Airlines signs MoU for up to 100 aircraft

With Airbus, for A-320neo Family airplanes

Airbus and Spirit Airlines have agreed to a Memorandum of Understanding for the US-based carrier to acquire up to 100 A-320neo Family aircraft. Its intention to place firm orders for a mix of A-319neo, A-320neo, and A-321neo to meet its future fleet requirements.

“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 US, Latin America, and the Caribbean. We look forward to working with our valued partners at Airbus to finalise our agreement".

Spirit is a fast growing ultra-low-cost carrier in the Americas, based in South Florida. Featuring the widest single-aisle cabin in the sky, the best-selling A-320neo Family, comprising the A-319neo, A-320neo, and A-321neo, deliver at least 20% reduced fuel burn as well as 50% less noise compared to previous-generation aircraft, thanks to incorporating the very latest technologies including new-generation engines and Sharklets. At the end of September 2019, the A320neo Family had received more than 6,650 firm orders from nearly 110 customers worldwide.
