Frontier Airlines has placed a firm order for nine Airbus A321ceo (current engine option) aircraft, Airbus announced on Monday 24 November. This is the first time Frontier has ordered the largest member of the Airbus A320 Family. The airline currently flies a fleet of 35 A319ceo, and 20 A320ceo aircraft. In addition, Frontier has on its order backlog 80 A320neo (new engine option) family aircraft.
Including the order announced today, Frontier has a backlog of 89 Airbus single-aisle aircraft. The airline has not yet announced its engine selection or the seating configuration for its A321s. Frontier began its transition to an all-Airbus fleet when it took delivery of its first Airbus aircraft in 2001.
