Spirit Airlines is soon to decide on the make-up of its future fleet and is considering adding “larger” Boeing aircraft, CEO Ted Christie said during a recent International Aviation Forecast Summit.
According to Reuters, Christie said that the ULCC was interested in the A321-300neo but was also “in conversations” with Boeing about its “larger” aircraft. He did specify the types of Boeing aircraft Spirit Airlines was looking at.
Spirit Airlines previously said it would decide the composition of its fleet orders around mid-2019. The carrier currently operates 31 A319-100s, 64 A320-200s, 12 A320-200neo and 30 A321-200s. The airline also has on order 45 A320neos which are due to be delivered through December 2021.
Christie, who became CEO of Spirit Airlines at the start of 2019, had previously said that the airline is not focussed on operating a single-type fleet.
