TAP Portugal has announced its planned fleet renewal by placing a large order for 53 Airbus aircraft valued at $8.5 billion at list prices.
The new order will cover both its medium and long haul fleets, and comprises:
- 15 A320neo
- 24 A321neo
- 14 A330-900neo
Interestingly, this new order will replace a previously placed order for 12 A350-900 aircraft.
“Our latest order for 14 Airbus A330-900neo aircraft and 39 A320neo Family aircraft reflects our ongoing commitment to provide our customers with the next generation of fuel efficient aircraft,” said Fernando Pinto, TAP Portugal CEO. “The A330neo, like the A320neo Family, will give us the flexibility to enter new markets and improve the frequency of existing ones due to its combination of high reliability, low operating costs and exceptional comfort,” he added.
TAP Portugal is an all Airbus customer, currently operating 43 A320 Family aircraft and 18 Widebody Family aircraft.
