"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."
