Wizz Air (Hungary), Frontier (United States), Volaris (Mexico) and JetSMART (Chile, Argentina), Indigo Partners portfolio airlines, have announced an order for 255 additional A-321neo Family aircraft under a joint Indigo Partners agreement. The firm order was signed at the "Dubai Airshow" (November 14-18).
This order brings the total number of aircraft ordered by the Indigo Partners’ airlines to 1,145 A-320 Family aircraft.
These airplanes ordered are a mix of A-321neos and A-321XLRs, which will be delivered to the individual airlines as follows:
