DALLAS — American Airlines (AA) has ordered 260 new aircraft, including 85 Airbus A321neo, 85 Boeing 737-10, and 90 Embraer E175 aircraft. Additionally, they have options and purchase rights for an additional 193 aircraft.

American has converted 30 existing 737-8 orders to 737 MAX 10 aircraft as part of their Boeing order. These orders are part of AA’s ongoing efforts to expand premium seats across their narrowbody and regional fleets and support the long-term strength of their domestic and short-haul international network.

The airline has been steadily growing its fleet over the years. Since 2014, they have taken delivery of more than 600 mainline and regional aircraft. With this latest announcement, American now has 440 aircraft on order, extending their aircraft order book into the next decade to meet the growing demand for air travel.

The new aircraft orders will help smooth the delivery schedule in the coming years and allow AA to remain within its previously announced guidance for capacity and capital expenditures, AA says. The A321 and A321neo aircraft have served AA customers across the U.S. and short-haul international destinations for the past decade.
