Airbus Delivers 100th US-made A320

The A320 is one of an order for 100 of the updated single-aisle aircraft that Frontier has with Airbus. The order is part of a 430 plane A320neo-family deal with the airline’s parent, US investment company Indigo Partners.

The overall deal was worth USD$49.5 billion at list prices. In addition to the 100 A320neos, Frontier will receive 34 A321neos. The Airbus delivery website shows Frontier has 30 A320neos already in service.

The Denver-based ultra low cost carrier’s newest addition sports two horses, Meadow and West on its tail.

Airbus Mobile is delivering four A320-family aircraft per month, with deliveries to eight US customers: Air Lease, Allegiant Air, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Frontier Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, JetBlue Airways and Spirit Airlines.

Airbus also assembles the A320 in Hamburg, Toulouse and Tianjin.
