US-based Spirit Airlines has finalised a purchase agreement with Airbus for 100 A320neo family aircraft. In October, the two parties had signed and announced a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the purchase of up to 100 of the aircraft – a mix of A319neo, A320neo, and A321neo – to meet the airline’s future fleet requirements.
Based in South Florida, the airline is one of the fastest-growing in the US, with flights throughout the country, Latin America and the Caribbean. It will announce an engine selection at a later date.
Featuring the widest single-aisle cabin in the sky, the best-selling A320neo family, comprising the A319neo, A320neo, and A321neo, will deliver a fuel-burn reduction of approximately 20% as well as 50% less noise compared to previous generation aircraft.
