Spirit Airlines completes order of 100 Airbus aircraft

US low-cost carrier Spirit Airlines has renewed its fleet with the purchase of 100 A320neo family aircraft from aerospace manufacturer Airbus.

The order includes a mixture of A319neo, A320neo, and A321neo aircraft, according to the plane producer, with the airline still to choose an engine at some point in the future.

Spirit is a strong International Aero Engines customer and its current A320neo fleet is powered by Pratt & Whitney PW1000Gs.

Spirit Airlines signed a memorandum of understanding for the jets in October, with delivery scheduled through 2027. The carrier’s all-Airbus fleet currently consists of 144 aircraft, including 20 A320neos, according to Cirium fleets data.

Airbus says that so far it has more than 7,300 firm orders from 110 customers worldwide for the A320neo family.
