Transavia signs for two additional new Airbus A321neo aircraft with ALC 

Transavia has signed up for two additional new Airbus A321-200neo aircraft with Air Lease Corporation (ALC).  

The new long-term lease agreement was announced by ALC on March 20, 2024, with Transavia expected to receive the planes in late 2025 and early 2026. 

The two new Airbus A321-200neos are in addition to a previous agreement between the two companies for the lease of seven A321-200neos.  

The first A321-200neo was delivered to Transavia in December 2023, marking the start of the carrier’s transition from Boeing to an all-Airbus in the future.  

“ALC is pleased to announce this transaction for two additional Airbus A321neo aircraft with Transavia,” Steven Udvar-Házy, Executive Chairman of Air Lease Corporation, said. “Our nine A321-200neo aircraft will offer significant enhancements and efficiency to the airline’s fleet operations, as demonstrated by the first ALC A321neo that delivered to Transavia last year.” 

In addition to the nine Airbus A321-200neo aircraft, ALC has 10 Boeing 737-800s on long-term lease with the Dutch carrier. 

By the end of 2024, Transavia France expects to operate 13 Airbus A320neo aircraft, alongside its fleet of close to 70 Boeing 737-800. 

The latest lease agreement follows an order placed by Air France-KLM in 2021 for 100 Airbus A320neo family aircraft – with purchase rights for an additional 60 aircraft – to renew the fleets of KLM and Transavia Netherlands, and to renew and expand the fleet of Transavia France. 

Transavia aims to replace all Boeing 737-700 and 737-800 aircraft with Airbus A320neo and A321neo models over the coming years. 

“The delivery of this first Airbus A320neo is a key step in the history of Transavia France. It marks the transition to all-Airbus fleet at Transavia and embodies our commitment to further developing the operations of our low-cost brand. It is part of our large, long-term fleet investments, designed to improve our Group’s economic and environmental performance,” Benjamin Smith, CEO of Air France-KLM, said following delivery of the first A321-200neo in December 2023.
