VivaAerobus Group has signed a purchase agreement for 52 Airbus A320 family aircraft – 40 A320neos and 12 A320ceos – with the carrier announcing its engine selection at a later date.
VivaAerobus will replace its entire fleet of Boeing 737-300s to become an all-Airbus carrier by 2016. “After evaluating the latest aircraft technology with the objective of further reducing our costs, improving our reliability, punctuality and the overall passenger experience, we are proud to announce that the Airbus A320 has been our final choice. This is an important milestone for our customers, shareholders and staff,” explained Juan Carlos Zuazua, VivaAerobus CEO. “This decision will support our growth strategy, as it will allow us to further reduce our industry leading fares, and will increase the cost-per-seat advantage we currently have among our competitors.”
