easyJet deal for 135 new planes

Budget airline easyJet is to upgrade and expand its fleet under a deal to buy 135 Airbus planes over the next nine years. The no-frills carrier said the new 180-seater A320 planes will allow it to boost passengers carried from 60m a year to 90m. The move will mean easyJet can replace around 85 of its current 211-strong fleet of 156-seaters.
