This order comes in addition to Jet2's order for 36 Airbus A321neo's in late August 2021, and reinforces the operator's commitment to all Airbus operations.
Data from IBA's InsightIQ Carbon Emissions Calculator shows the A321neo remains one of the greenest large narrowbody aircraft in service to-date, with lower CO2 emissions per seat kilometre than the older Airbus A321-200 and the Boeing 757-200 (examples of the latter have been utilised at Jet2). Further recent analysis using InsightIQ revealed the A321LR is likely to be a top choice for the eco-aware long haul traveller, and recently entered service with Jet Blue.
According to their press release, Jet2 say that "at current list prices, these additional 15 aircraft represent a total value of approximately $2.0billion with a total transaction value, for up to 75 aircraft, of approximately $10.1billion, though the Company has negotiated significant discounts from the list price". The operator also states that it has flexibility to increase the order to up to 60 aircraft.
IBA’s InsightIQ analysis platform flexibly illustrates multiple asset, fleet and market positions, actual and potential, to inform client choices and identify acquisition opportunities. Immediate access to crucial aircraft, engine, lease rate and fleet data eases appreciation of historic and future aircraft concentrations and operator profiles.
