The British airline EasyJet announced on Tuesday that it has reached an agreement to buy 56 Airbus A320neo planes and to change an earlier order to 18 brand-new A321neo planes.

The aircraft’s list price is $6.5 billion, and the business claims that deliveries would start in the carrier’s 2026 fiscal year to replace its aging A319 and A320 planes.

“The proposed purchase firms up EasyJet’s order book with Airbus, continuing the company’s fleet refresh, as A319s and older A320s leave the business and new A320 and A321 neo aircraft enter providing up gauging, cost and sustainability enhancements to the business,” it said in the statement.

“The directors believe this will support the delivery of our strategic objectives and provide the aircraft to help build strong shareholder returns.”
