GRUPO Marsans has signed a firm order with Airbus. The purchase comprises 61 Airbus aircraft, which include four A380s, ten A350-900s, five A330-200s and 42 A320 family aircraft (12 A319s, 25 A320s and five A321s).

This new order adds to the previous order for 12 A330-200s and will bring Grupo Marsans’ total orders with Airbus to 73 aircraft.
Gonzalo Pascual, president of Grupo Marsans, said: “This important order allows Grupo Marsans to put into action its mid- and long-term development plans: to enhance our position on the short- and long-haul sector by incorporating the most efficient aircraft available on the market today and tomorrow. In addition to the overall fleet enhancement this represents, we are particularly proud that, with the A380, we will become the first A380 customer and operator in Spain and Latin America.”
