Alaska Airlines Last A321neo
These Airbus A321 aircraft were acquired by Alaska Airlines through the merger with Virgin America. Still, the carrier is now transitioning back to being an all-Boeing operator for its mainline fleet.
According to data from the ch-aviation fleets advanced module, Alaska Airlines currently possesses ten A321neo aircraft. Although Virgin America initially ordered all of these before their merger with Alaska Air Group, only four were delivered to the low-cost carrier.
At the same time, the remaining six were received by Alaska Airlines. Five of these A321neo aircraft are still in active service, while the other five were retired in the first half of September 2023.
All Boeing Fleet Operator
Alaska Airlines had already phased out all ten A319-100s in 2020 and all fifty-three A320-200s by early 2023. Initially, the plan was to keep the A321neo aircraft in operation until the end of 2023, but the airline decided to expedite their retirement.
According to the ch-aviation fleets advanced module, Alaska Airlines’ passenger Boeing 737 (B737) fleet includes eleven 737-700s, fifty-nine 737-800s, fifty-six ACV!7M9s, twelve 737-900s, and seventy-nine 737-900ERs.
Additionally, there are orders in place for ten 737-8s and thirty-one more 737-9s.
