Air France-KLM has signed a firm order for 100 Airbus A320neo family aircraft, to be delivered to KLM and its subsidiary Transavia.

The order consists of both A320neo and A321neo, and includes purchase options for 60 more planes of the neo family.

The new aircraft will be used to renew and expand the fleets of KLM, Transavia Netherlands and Transavia France. All three airlines are currently operating Boeing 737, which will be replaced by A320neo and A321neo on their short- and medium-haul networks. Deliveries are expected to start in the second half of 2023. Details on the number of seats and cabin configurations were not unveiled at the time of the announcement.

Furthermore, the agreement with aircraft manufacturer Airbus also includes a Letter of Intent for four A350F cargo airplanes for Air France, making Air France the fourth announced customer for the newly launched freight version of the A350.
