Easyjet takes delivery of its 400th Airbus Aircraft

easyJet and Airbus marked their successful ongoing partnership of more than 20 years, with the aircraft manufacturer delivering the airline operator’s 400th Airbus aircraft, an Airbus A321neo.

A handover ceremony for easyJet’s newest aircraft was held at Finkenwerder – Airbus’s manufacturing plant for the A320 programme in Hamburg. The newest addition to the fleet features a special livery design, with the number 400 made up of miniature aircraft.

The delivery flight from Hamburg-Finkenwerder to easyJet´s maintenance hangar at Berlin/Brandenburg airport was powered by a 5% percent Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) blend, marking the first SAF-usage by any easyJet service from Germany.

Since the delivery of easyJet’s first Airbus A320 family aircraft 20 years ago, the airline has established itself as one of the world’s largest operators of Airbus’ single-aisle A320 family aircraft, with over 330 aircraft currently in service.

The event, which coincided with easyJet’s 20th anniversary of operations in Germany, comes after the airline’s recent confirmation of a firm order for 157 additional A320neo family aircraft. The firm order comprises 56 A320neo and 101 A321neo aircraft and also includes the upsizing of an existing order for 35 A320neo into the larger A321neo.
