Spirit Airlines reached a Memorandum of Understanding to acquire up to 100 Airbus A320neo Family aircraft. Spirit announced its intention to place firm orders for a mix of A319neo, A320neo, and A321neo to meet its future fleet requirements.
“This new order represents another milestone for Spirit,” said Ted Christie, president and CEO of Spirit Airlines. “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.”
Spirit is one of the fastest growing ultra-low-cost carriers in the Americas, based in South Florida. 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 Christian Scherer, CCO, Airbus. “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.”
