easyJet bases LEAP-1A powered Airbus A320neo at London Gatwick

easyJet has positioned a new LEAP-1A powered A320neo into London Gatwick where it will now be based. This is only the second A320neo in the easyJet fleet with the other joining earlier this month and based at London Luton.

Sophie Dekkers, UK Country Director said: “We are pleased to be welcoming our first London Gatwick based neo to the fleet today. The A320neo is a major step change for our fleet efficiency and will provide a cost per seat saving of up to 7% over the current A320, which itself has a cost saving benefit of up to 8% over the A319 and this benefit will enable easyJet to continue to offer our famous low fares helping to connect people across Europe for work and play.”

“With 130 NEO aircraft on order we are also Europe’s largest customer for this revolutionary new plane and really looking forward to operating the NEO and realising its cost, customer, carbon and noise benefits,” she added.
