On Tuesday (April 9, 2024), easyJet announced that they have taken delivery of the 400th Airbus Aircraft at Airbus’ Hamburg-Finkenwerder final assembly line (FAL) site.  Following a handover celebration, the aircraft, an Airbus A321neo, took off on its inaugural flight to the carrier’s Berlin base and maintenance site, where it will be prepared for entry into passenger revenue service.  The milestone 400th delivery coincides with easyJet’s 20th anniversary of operations in Germany.  easyJet’s newest Airbus A321neo features a special livery design, with the number ‘400’ made up of miniature aircraft, and the delivery flight to Berlin Brandenburg (BER) was conducted with 5.0 percent SAF. 


Speaking on the milestone 400th Airbus aircraft delivery, easyJet’s Chief Operating Officer, David Morgan, said,


“We are really pleased to take delivery of our 400th aircraft from Airbus which also coincided with our 20th anniversary of operating in Germany.  As we continue our fleet renewal programme with more fuel-efficient, quieter aircraft from the A320neo family we are proud to continue working with Airbus and CFM who both have a tenacious approach to manufacturing and sustainability and continue to be reliable partners for easyJet.”


Also commenting on the occasion, Airbus’ EVP – Sales, Commercial Aircraft, Benoit de Saint Exupéry, added,


“It’s a mark of easyJet’s commitment to minimise fuel burn and emissions by operating the latest technology aircraft, that it has taken a little over 20 years to deliver its 400th Airbus aircraft, averaging an impressive 20 new Airbus aircraft deliveries every year, since 2003.”
