Virgin America Signs Firm Order for 60 New Airbus Aircraft

Virgin America announced a firm order for 60 new Airbus A320 aircraft to be delivered starting in 2013, including 30 of the A320neo aircraft -- the first commercial order for the new eco-efficient engine option. This formalizes and expands an initial commitment made at the Farnborough International Airshow in July 2010, but the announcement of the new fuel-saving A320neo is a new development in that deal.


Virgin America is the launch customer for the new Airbus A320neo aircraft, which promises to be one of the most fuel and carbon-efficient commercial aircraft in the world. With the order and growth from other sources, Virgin America’s fleet will more than triple in size -- from its current 34 aircraft to 111 aircraft by 2019.
