easyJet Takes Delivery of Its 250th Airbus Aircraft

easyJet and Airbus have celebrated their successful partnership at a ceremony in Hamburg to mark the delivery the airline’s 250th Airbus A320 family aircraft.

Carolyn McCall, easyJet CEO, Jean-Paul Ebanga, CFM International President and CEO, Didier Evrard, Airbus EVP and Head of Programmes, and Christopher Buckley, Airbus EVP Europe, Africa and Asia-Pacific were present at the event.

To celebrate the 250th delivery, easyJet unveiled its newest A320 with a unique livery featuring 250 miniature aircraft. As with other recent deliveries to easyJet, the A320 is equipped with the latest technology and fuel-saving Sharklets. 

Carolyn McCall, CEO of easyJet, commented: 

“Taking delivery of our 250th Airbus helps us to continue to make travel easy and affordable and on our journey to become Europe’s leading airline. This milestone symbolizes the long term and successful partnership between Airbus and easyJet.  

“It was only four years ago that we celebrated our 200th aircraft delivery. With the 250th aircraft delivery easyJet is the world’s youngest airline to reach a fleet of 250 Airbus aircraft also achieving it in the fastest time. easyJet is proud to count Airbus and CFM as such reliable partners.”

easyJet is Europe’s leading airline offering a unique and winning combination of the best route network connecting Europe’s primary airports, with great value fares and friendly service . 

The airline flies 234 aircraft on more than 750 routes to over 130 airports across 33 countries. 

easyJet operates Europe’s largest and the world’s fourth largest Airbus single aisle fleet. Since easyJet took delivery of its first Airbus aircraft (an A319) in September 2003, Airbus has delivered an aircraft on average every 16 days since the first delivery 

easyJet has 158 aircraft currently on order, and in terms of total aircraft orders is Airbus’ third biggest airline customer. Currently easyJet fly a fleet of 85 A320s (180 seats) and 149 A319s (156 seats).

“It is hugely satisfying to witness easyJet’s tremendous growth and market success – and that they have achieved all of this with Airbus as their major partner’, said Didier Evrard, Airbus EVP and Head of Programmes. “easyJet’s massive investment in A320 Family aircraft, as well as their large order for 100 A320neos, is a great endorsement for our A320 Family, and demonstrates easyJet’s commitment to operating the most modern, productive and comfortable aircraft.”

With over 11,550 aircraft ordered, and almost 6,500 aircraft delivered to over 315 customers and operators worldwide, the A320 Family is today the world’s best-selling single-aisle aircraft family.
