Jet2 Increase Airbus Order

Jet2 has placed an incremental order for 35 A320neo aircraft taking its total commitment to the Family to 98 aircraft. The latest agreement comes just over a year since Jet2.com placed its first order for 36 A321neo in August 2021, followed by further commitments thereby securing its growth needs as the demand continues to outpace supply with potential orders that could be extended up to 146 aircraft. The A320neos will be configured for 180 seats with an Airspace cabin featuring innovative lighting, new seating products and 60% larger overhead baggage bins for added personal storage.

Commenting on the increased order, Jet2 plc’s Executive Chairman Philip Meeson said, ”We are delighted to build on our existing relationship with Airbus and to have placed this additional aircraft order which provides the Company with certainty of supply well into the next decade. The order reflects our confidence that we have a much‐loved product built on sector leading Customer Service which we can continue to grow and these aircraft will ensure our Customers have a wonderfully comfortable and enjoyable experience as they travel with us.”

The A320neo Family incorporates new generation engines and Sharklets, which together deliver more than 25% fuel and CO 2 savings, as well as a 50% noise reduction. Passengers are benefitting throughout the trip from Airbus’ award-winning Airspace interior, which brings the latest cabin technology to the A320 Family. At the end of August 2022, the A320neo Family accumulated over 8,500 firm orders from more than 130 customers worldwide.
