Star Flyer Places Its First Direct Order For Two A320s

Japanese Carrier Flies A 100% Airbus fleet

The Japanese airline Star Flyer has signed a firm contract with Airbus for the purchase of two A320s. The Japanese airline currently operates five leased A320s, with four more to be delivered. This order is the Japanese carrier’s first aircraft purchase. The new aircraft will feature 144 to 150 seats in a single-class layout and are powered by CFM56-5B4/P engines. Star Flyer intends to use the new jets to increase frequencies and to open new routes in Japan and to Korea.

Star Flyer President and CEO Shinichi Yonehara said, “We have been operating A320s since March 2006, when we inaugurated our service from New Kita Kyushu Airport. The Airbus aircraft have played a key role in our success, offering excellent cost efficiency combined with an outstanding operational reliability. Its comfortable cabin furnished with leather seats and a cutting-edge in-flight entertainment system is highly appreciated by our passengers.”

"Within five years, the airline has established a remarkable position in the challenging Japanese market," said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer. "We are pleased that the economic efficiency of our leading single-aisle Family has contributed so forcefully to their success.”
