30 New A321s for JetBlue

 

New York-based JetBlue Airways has amended its existing purchase agreement with Airbus to include an additional 15 Airbus A321ceo (current engine option) and 15 A321neo (new engine option) aircraft. Beginning in 2019, JetBlue has the flexibility to configure the A321neo aircraft to the longer range A321LR.

Many of JetBlue’s newly ordered A321 aircraft are expected to be delivered from Airbus’ newest manufacturing facility in Mobile, Alabama. The first aircraft to be produced at Airbus’ US Manufacturing Facility – a JetBlue A321 known as the ‘BluesMobile’ delivered this spring and was recently displayed at the EAA AirVenture air show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

JetBlue currently operates a fleet of 160 A320 family aircraft, including 130 A320s and 30 A321s. Including this most recent order the airline’s backlog of Airbus aircraft comprises 116 jets: 25 A320neo, 31 A321ceo, and 60 A321neo aircraft.
