British holiday airline Jet2.com has taken delivery of its first Airbus A321neo airliner as it starts to expand and renew its fleet.
Registered as G-SUNB, the Airbus A321neo arrived into the UK this morning ahead of its entry into service with the Leeds Bradford-based airline from Manchester.
The delivery is part of an order for 98 Airbus aircraft placed by the airline last year which includes 36 A321neo aircraft and 35 A320neo aircraft.
Jet2’s Airbus aircraft will be used across its holiday and charter services as part of Jet2 and Jet2 Holidays.
Speaking at the time of ordering the type, Philip Meeson, executive chairman of Channel Express Group which owns the airline, said: “We are delighted to build on our existing relationship with Airbus and to have placed this additional aircraft order which provides the company with the certainty of supply well into the next decade.
“The order reflects our confidence that we have a much-loved product built on sector-leading customer service which we can continue to grow and these aircraft will ensure our customers have a wonderfully comfortable and enjoyable experience as they travel with us for their well-deserved real package holidays from Jet2holidays or scheduled holiday flights with Jet2.com.”
The aircraft will operate in Jet2 Holiday colours.
