easyJet has reached an agreement with Airbus to convert 30 current A320neo orders to A321neo aircraft with a 235 seat configuration, with the first delivery expected in Summer 2018. This is part of the existing easyJet Airbus framework agreement signed in 2013. The A321neo aircraft will enable easyJet to continue to deliver growth in slot constrained airports with an increase in seats per flight of around 30% compared to an A320 and 50% when replacing an A319. In addition, the A321neos will secure substantial unit cost savings which are estimated to be around 8% to 9% better than an A320neo
