Spirit Airlines and Airbus sign deal for 75 single-aisle aircraft

Spirit Airlines and Airbus have signed a memorandum of understanding for Spirit to acquire 75 single-aisle aircraft, comprising 45 A320 neo aircraft and 30 A320s.

The engine selection will be announced later.

The aircraft will be used on Spirit’s targeted growth markets in the US, Caribbean and Latin America. The A320 neo will help build on the success the airline is said to have enjoyed with its existing all-Airbus fleet of 35 A320-series aircraft.
