Indigo Partners to add 50 A321XLR

Indigo Partners and three of its airlines will acquire 50 of the new Airbus A321XLR long-range, single-aisle jetliners.

The Memorandum of Understanding includes new orders for 32 A321XLRs and the conversion of 18 existing A320neo family orders. 

Indigo Partners, based in Phoenix, Arizona, is a private equity fund focused on worldwide investments in air transportation.

Indigo has major ownership stakes in four lowcost airlines, including Frontier Airlines (U.S.), JetSMART (Chile), Volaris (Mexico) and Wizz Air (Hungary).

The four carriers now operate a combined 295 Airbus planes and, with the new commitments, have 636 on order. 

Twenty of the A321XLRs will be allocated to Wizz Air, 18 to Frontier, and 12 to JetSMART.
