UPDATE – easyJet has ensured long-term delivery slots for new aircraft by placing an order for 157 A320neo family aircraft for delivery between FY29 and FY34. easyJet’s shareholders approved the transaction on December 19 during a general meeting. The carrier first said on October 12 that it intended to order 56 A320neo’s and 101 A321neo’s for replacement of A320ceo family aircraft.

The low-cost airline still has 158 A320neo family aircraft on existing orders, including the one for 56 that was finalized at the 2022 Farnborough Airshow. 69 aircraft have already been delivered from previous orders. The airline has converted now 35 A320neo’s into A321neo’s. This brings the model split to 90 A320neo’s and 68 A321neo’s for deliveries set to be completed in FY29.
