easyJet and Airbus have celebrated their successful partnership at a ceremony in Hamburg to mark the delivery of the airline’s 250th Airbus A320 family aircraft.
To mark the occasion the airline revealed a unique livery featuring 250 miniature aircraft. As with other recent deliveries to easyJet, the A320 is equipped with the latest technology and fuel-saving Sharklets. See also ON TOUR PLUS in this issue.
Carolyn McCall, CEO of easyJet, commented:
“Taking delivery of our 250th Airbus helps us to continue to make travel easy and affordable and on our journey to become Europe’s leading airline. This milestone symbolizes the long-term and successful partnership between Airbus and easyJet.
“It was only four years ago that we celebrated our 200th aircraft delivery. With the 250th aircraft delivery easyJet is the world’s youngest airline to reach a fleet of 250 Airbus aircraft also achieving it in the fastest time. easyJet is proud to count Airbus and CFM as such reliable partners.”
easyJet operates Europe’s largest and the world’s fourth largest Airbus single aisle fleet. Since easyJet took delivery of its first Airbus aircraft (an A319) in September 2003, Airbus has delivered an aircraft on average every 16 days since the first delivery. www.easyjet.com www.airbus.com

We flew to Prague a couple of weeks ago and found ourselves on one of the new Sharklet A320s on the return journey. The seats are now non-reclinable, there were no head covers and the distance between the seats appeared to be slightly greater than others in the fleet. Low fare progress with the passenger in mind?
