SINGAPORE--Singapore Airlines Ltd. (C6L.SG) said unit Scoot Pte. will add 16 Airbus SE (EADSY) A321neo aircraft to its fleet to support growth plans.
Of the 16 aircraft, six are an upsize from Scoot's current A320neo order from Airbus, while 10 will be leased, the discount carrier said in a media release.
The A321neo jets will have 236 seats, 50 more than the smaller A320neo variant of the jet ordered by the company.
