easyJet formally signs for 135 Airbus A320s
easyJet has commemorated the deal it agreed last June with Airbus for 135 Airbus A320 aircraft in Paris today, with an official signing ceremony.
Carolyn McCall, easyJet CEO, commented: "I am delighted to be in Paris alongside Frédéric Cuvillier, Minister of Transport and Fabrice Brégier, CEO and President of Airbus to commemorate the easyJet order for 35 current generation aircraft and 100 A320neo new generation aircraft.”
“easyJet is the second largest airline in France and a key player in the French economy. Having flown more than 100m passengers to and from France since 1998, easyJet aims to continue this growth and attract in excess of 15 million passengers this year in France.”
easyJet is the fourth largest airline in Europe with a current fleet of 217 Airbus A319s and A320s and has taken delivery of 245 Airbus aircraft in total.
easyJet will launch 24 new routes in France this year, strengthening its regional bases in Nice and Toulouse, alongside a 30% expansion in Bordeaux and the opening of two new network points - Strasbourg and Figari.
