Spirit announced its intention to place firm orders for a mix of A319neo, A320neo, and A321neo to meet its future fleet requirements.

“This new order represents another milestone for Spirit,” said Spirit Airlines’ President and CEO Ted Christie. “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 finalise our agreement.”

“The Airbus A320 Family has been a strong platform for the remarkable success of Spirit over the past several years,” said Airbus Chief Commercial Officer Christian Scherer.  “The ongoing, enthusiastic spirit the airline demonstrates in our A320neo Family is most rewarding and we look forward to playing a part in the Spirit team’s continued growth for many, many years to come.”

At the end of September 2019, the A320neo Family had received more than 6,650 firm orders from nearly 110 customers worldwide.
