Spirit is expecting delivery of 48 A320neos in 2020 and 2021 and is something Spirit Airlines CEO Ted Christie talked about in a press statement saying:
“This new order represents another milestone for Spirit. 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. We look forward to working with our valued partners at Airbus to finalize our agreement.”
With the next generation of fuel-efficient engines that burn 20% less fuel, plus noise reduction level of 50%, Spirit’s new single-aisle cabin should prove to be exciting times for Spirit fliers.
The total order from the South Florida carrier is expected to value around $11 Billion, this is another win for Airbus. The A320neo is very popular in the industry with firm orders worldwide for the A320neo Family surpassing 7,300 from more than 110 global customers.
