easyJet places latest A320neo order with Airbus

Airbus has reached an agreement with easyJet that extends the airline’s fleet plans into 2023, exercising purchase rights to firm orders for 17 A320neo.

This takes its combined order for the neo-variant to 147 (including 30 A321neo) and means easyJet has ordered 468 A320 family aircraft to date.

“This repeat order cements easyJet’s position as the largest European operator of our leading A320 family,” said Christian Scherer, Airbus chief commercial officer.

“We are delighted that our aircraft keep contributing to easyJet’s ongoing success.”   

The aircraft are configured with 186 seats in a single class configuration and powered by Leap CFM engines.
