easyJet has placed an order for 27 additional Airbus A320ceo (current engine option) aircraft, taking its combined total order for the type to 315 aeroplanes.
"We are bringing new aircraft into the fleet as we continue to see a significant number of new profitable opportunities in our core markets in the near term and in order to maintain our cost advantage," said Carolyn McCall, easyJet Chief Executive.
“easyJet is a demanding customer and this repeat order is as solid an endorsement as you can get for the A320’s proven productivity, reliability and comfort. The A320 Family has the widest cabin which also helps with faster airport turnaround times,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers.
easyJet says it selected the A320 for its all-Airbus fleet as the aircraft delivers the best operating economics and the roomiest cabin for unequalled passenger comfort in the single aisle category. The airline currently operates a fleet of 225 Airbus A320 family aircraft and is the largest operator of the type in Europe. In June 2013 it ordered 100 of the new A320neo and with this latest order, easyJet’s combined total order for all members of the A320 family rises to 415 aircraft. www.easyjet.com
