Jet2 is ordering 36 A321NEOs! Their 757s are getting old and its about time for a new era and also to check their fleets best before date (lol) as they are on average 30 years old I’m so excited as this is the first time they are placing an order with Airbus. The Chairman said this…
“This aircraft is, in our opinion, the most efficient and environmentally friendly aircraft in its class today. It will give our holiday customers a wonderfully comfortable and enjoyable experience as they travel with us for their well deserved Jet2 holiday”
Obviously many airlines are eyeing Airbus for new modern aircraft for its efficiency, comfort and safety especially the fly-by-wire Airbus offers.
“Traditionally having been operating non-fly-by-wire aircraft, we note with great satisfaction that, after having tested a couple of leased A321s and run a comprehensive evaluation, Jet2 is forward-looking and investing in modern and future proof Airbus fly-by-wire technology”
Personally I think this is a huge step in the right direction for Jet2 as they would be operating a quieter and safer fleet of aircraft which is what passengers want right?
