Frontier Airlines has taken delivery of its first A321. In the past year the airline placed firm orders for 19 A321s. All these A321s are equipped with Sharklets. Frontier’s A321s seat 230 in a single class, and powered by CFM56-5B engines.
Frontier’s current in-service fleet consists of 35 A319s and 22 A320s. In addition to the remaining 18 A321s on backlog, the airline has 18 A319neo, 62 A320neo and two A320ceo aircraft on order, for a total backlog of 100 Airbus single-aisles.
Frontier’s new A321s will initially be used on their routes from Orlando to Philadelphia, Denver, Cleveland and Detroit. The airline just this fall opened up a new crew base in Orlando to support the A321.
