Spirit Airlines Signs Commitment for 75 Airbus A320 Family Jets

  • Deal includes 45 A320neo eco-efficient aircraft
Spirit Airlines and Airbus signed today at the Dubai Airshow a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for 75 single-aisle aircraft, comprising 45 A320neo aircraft (new engine option) and 30 A320s. The engine selection will be announced later.

The new aircraft will be used on Spirit's targeted growth markets in the U.S., Caribbean and Latin America. The A320neo will help build on the great economic success the airline has already enjoyed with their existing all-Airbus fleet of 35 A320 Family aircraft


"We are excited to expand our partnership with Airbus and grow our fleet into the next decade," said Ben Baldanza, President and CEO of Spirit Airlines. "Spirit Airlines' low fares require an efficient, reliable aircraft and the A320 Family, including the neo, fits that model well."

"The A320 and A320neo continue to set the pace," said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. "The unrivalled economics of these aircraft convinced Spirit to go all-Airbus and that decision has clearly paid off since for the airline."
