Aircraft delivered between 2018 and 2021
These medium-haul aircraft, with a capacity of 186 seats, will be delivered between 2018 and 2021. According to EasyJet, they need to accelerate the replacement of its existing A319.
In detail, 30 options into firm orders for the A320neo were lifted. They were part of an agreement announced in June 2013, which provided an option on 135 A320, 100 neo. EasyJet has added on Tuesday six firm orders for aircraft of the current generation A320. The difference between “current” and “neo” is at the level of motorization.
