Frontier Airlines Places $1.3B Order for 12 Airbus A320 Family Aircraft
The ultra-low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines is set to purchase 12 Airbus A320 family aircraft. Worth an approximate $1.3 billion, the deal includes ten A321 and two A320 airliners which will be used to replace Frontier Airlines’ larger variants while phasing out the Airbus A319 aircraft.
Frontier Airlines will increase to 101 aircraft over the span of five years and expects to have a continuous annual growth of 15%. With the new aircraft, Frontier airlines will be able to carry more people on a single trip which allows the company to move towards their goal of becoming the lowest cost carrier in the United States. The A320 aircraft are expected to be delivered in 2016 while the A321 aircraft will arrive in 2017.
The Airbus A320 single-aisle medium-range airliner first entered service in 1988 and more than 5,000 aircraft of the A320 family are in service today, with more than 8,600 ordered. The A320 family includes the A319 and A318 short-bodied versions and the A321 stretched version. The A319 entered service in 1996, the A321-100 in 1994, and the A321-200 in 1997. The A318 made its first flight in January 2002 and entered service in July 2003. The A320 was the first subsonic airliner to have a fly-by-wire flight control system.
Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, Frontier Airlines is a North American ultra-low-cost airline. Operating under Indigo Partners, LLC, Frontier Airlines has flight operations to 52 destinations in the United States as well as 7 international destinations.
