The aircraft are configured with 186 seats in a single class configuration and powered by Leap CFM engines.
 
EasyJet currently operates a fleet of 316 A320 Family including 17 A320neo and three A321neo, making it the world’s largest airline operator of Airbus’ single aisle aircraft. easyJet serves over 130 European airports in some 31 countries operating over 1000 routes.
 
The A320neo has more than 6,200 orders from over 100 customers since its launch in 2010.
