The agreement for six A320ceo and 30 A320neo makes easyJet one of the world’s biggest airline customers for the A320ceo Family with 321 ordered and also for the A320neo with 130 on order. As with other recent deliveries to easyJet, the A320 is equipped with the latest technology and fuel-saving Sharklets.
More Comfort, Less Emissions
“Our mission is to make air travel easy and affordable, and Airbus is a key partner in delivering this to our passengers. The A320neo with new seats will provide wonderful levels of comfort and space. It is also more fuel efficient – which will reduce emissions and provide lower costs per seat which will help keep fares low. The new quieter aircraft will reduce our impact on the communities who live near our airports. Our partnership with Airbus was built on the A320 Family and this will continue with the A320neo”, said Carolyn McCall, CEO of easyJet.
Europe’s Largest Airbus Fleet
easyJet operates Europe’s largest and the world’s fourth largest Airbus single aisle fleet. The airline flies on more than 750 routes to over 130 airports across 31 countries.

With over 12,200 aircraft ordered, and more than 6,700 aircraft delivered to over 400 customers and operators worldwide, the A320 Family is today the world’s best-selling single-aisle aircraft family.
