PARIS, FRANCE — Volaris Boosts fleet with 25 more Airbus A321neo Jets: A strategic leap toward sustainability.

In a major expansion push, Volaris, the Mexican budget airline, is gearing up to acquire an additional 25 Airbus A321neo twin-engine jets. The revelation was made by Airbus during the Paris Air Show, referencing an under-the-radar agreement penned back in October 2022.

Airbus highlighted that Volaris's pending order tally now sits at an impressive 143 A320neo-family aircraft. Consistent with Volaris's past purchases, each of these aircraft will be equipped with Pratt & Whitney PW1000G engines.

Volaris's CEO, Enrique Beltranena, indicated that the acquisition of these A321neos is integral to their long-term business survival and eco-friendly strategy. With this move, the company is setting the course towards an all-neo fleet by the end of 2028.

Currently, the low-cost carrier operates around 65 A320neo-family aircraft, which includes 19 A321neos. Additionally, their existing aviation assets comprise roughly 50 A320ceo-family aircraft. Significantly, Volaris's fleet is exclusively Airbus, underscoring the carrier's confidence in the airframer's cutting-edge aviation technology.
