Spirit Air Fleet Questions

Tue May 10, 2005 4:54 am

How many MD-80s and A321s do they currently have on property and how many are they scheduled to get? Are they going to buy and 319s/320s. What is the delivery schedule looking like. Thanks to anyone who can shed some light on this matter.

Spirit is operating 29 MD-80. 7 of them are leased.

The deal with Airbus consists in an order, in March 2004, for 35 aircraft + 60 options.

4 A321 were delivered last year. 21 are to be delivered within the next five years.
2 A319 have been delivered last March. 8 more should be delivered by the end of 2005.

The MD-80's are retired progressively on a one-on-one basis, as the first Airbus arrived.

I was just doing some research on my own and according to the airbus website NK only has 4 A321s on order. Is this a mistake?

Probably.
4 aircraft have been delivered.
The initial firm order was for 35 a/c : 25 A321 + 10 A319.
