Spirit Airlines Receives 200th New Aircraft Delivery from Airbus

Spirit Airlines has received a landmark delivery for its growing fleet with the 200th new aircraft from Airbus. The Airbus A320neo (N973NK) was assembled at the Airbus U.S. Manufacturing Facility in Mobile, Alabama, and prepared for service at Spirit’s aircraft maintenance facility in Detroit.

The new delivery is part of continued growth at Spirit. The airline introduced 14 new planes last year and is on track to add another 26 new aircraft in 2023. Additionally, Spirit has a major first with the upcoming delivery of its first A321neo aircraft.

Spirit transitioned to an all-Airbus fleet in 2006, and currently operates one of the most fuel-efficient fleets in the industry with an average age of about seven years. The investments in new A320neo family aircraft with enhanced aerodynamics and the latest-generation jet engines are paying off with significant reductions in fuel burn, less emissions and lower noise levels.

“Our new, fuel-efficient aircraft allow us to deliver on our promise to give our Guests both an affordable and great experience,” said Spirit Airlines President and CEO Ted Christie in the announcement. “Spirit’s Pilots truly enjoy flying our modern aircraft fleet, and we’d like to thank Airbus for their long-term partnership. I’d also like to recognize all our Spirit Family Members and business partners who prepare our planes for service and keep them in tip-top shape with safety as their top priority.”

Spirit’s newest aircraft deliveries feature an upgraded interior with wider seats that are lower in weight and include new, comfortable features. The airline’s Big Front Seats are even bigger. Spirit also recently introduced high-speed Wi-Fi on its A320 and A321 sub-fleets.
