American Airlines Continues Aircraft Shopping Spree with Airbus

Firm Continues Adding to Airbus Collection with 85 More A321neos

American Airlines singed a firm order for 85 A321neo narrowbodies, bringing its total order for the type to 219 aircraft.

The carrier took delivery of its first of the type in 2019, and has brought its total fleet of A321neos to 70 in all. The carrier remains the world's largest operator of the family, including the older A321ceo. It makes sense that they would keep on buying more of the same, since the Airbus product just keeps refining its offerings. The newest mark of the A321 offers 20% fuel savings and 50% fuel reduction over legacy ones, and every cent counts in the cutthroat airline biz.

"Over the past decade, we have invested heavily to modernise and simplify our fleet, which is the largest and youngest among U.S. network carriers,” said American’s CEO Robert Isom. “These orders will continue to fuel our fleet with newer, more efficient aircraft so we can continue to deliver the best network and record-setting operational reliability for our customers.”

“The continued investment in the A321neo is a testament to the unprecedented value of the world’s most versatile and capable single aisle aircraft,” said Benoît de Saint-Exupéry, EVP Sales, Commercial Aircraft, Airbus. “ For nearly two decades, American Airlines has used its A320 Family of aircraft, some of which have been produced in the U.S. in Mobile, Alabama, to grow its domestic and short-haul international network and provide an exceptional experience for its passengers and crews.”
