Greek carrier Aegean Airlines has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Airbus for thirty A320neo family aircraft, comprising twenty A320neos and then A321neos. The airline is also expected to acquire further A320neos via leasing companies.
Aegean currently operates a fleet of forty six A320 family aircraft.
Eftichios Vassilakis, Vice-Chairman of Aegean Airlines stated: “Aegean’s decision to select the latest generation Airbus A320neo Family follows an intense and exhaustive evaluation to determine the best aircraft for Aegean’s growth and long-term success. These aircraft will be key for us to pursue our mission of providing services of high standards for our passengers on short and medium haul services.”
“We are delighted that Aegean, an all Airbus customer, has chosen the bestselling single-aisle Family, becoming a new operator of the type. The commonality these aircraft offer along with lowest operating costs, longest range and a more spacious cabin make the A320neo Family the best choice for growing airlines such as Aegean,” said Eric Schulz, Airbus Chief Commercial Officer.
