Mexican ultra-low-cost carrier Viva Aerobus and European manufacturer Airbus have reached an agreement for the purchase of an additional 90 A321neo aircraft. Once the Memorandum of Understanding is firmed up, planes will start to get delivered to the airline from 2027 onwards.

At the same time, Viva Aerobus also announced that it would keep Pratt&Whitney as its engine supplier for the top up order. The airline will use these new aircraft to continue expanding in the Mexican domestic market and also internationally, especially to the United States once the FAA upgrades Mexico‘s safety rating.

Viva Aerobus was launched in 2006 and currently operates a fleet of 72 Airbus A320ceo and A320neo family aircraft, with a further 23 A321neo on order before this MoU.
