Spirit airlines may triple fleet in 75-Jet Airbus agreement

21 November 2011

Spirit Airlines‘s agreement to buy 75 single-aisle jets from Airbus SAS, with list prices totaling $6.7 billion, would triple the carrier’s existing fleet within the next decade.

The non-binding memorandum of understanding includes 45 upgraded A320neos with new, more fuel-efficient engines and 30 of the existing model.

Spirit focuses on leisure travelers who fly to beach destinations, and offers low base fares with higher add-on fees, such as $35 to bring a piece of luggage aboard a plane.
