Toulouse, France - The Chilean ultra-low-cost operator JetSmart has taken delivery of its first Airbus A320neo.

The airline currently operates 11 Airbus A320-200 and plans to grow its fleet considerably with Airbus's new-generation A320 family jets.

Apart from the newly arrived A320neo, JetSmart has 55 more A320neo, 14 A321neo, and 12 A321XLR on order waiting to be delivered. Besides the new routes within South America, the carrier is planning to add new destinations to its network in North America with the arrival of long-range A321neos.

The first A320neo of the Chilean operator is part of an agreement for five aircraft with the leasing company SMBC Aviation Capital.

JetSmart is wholly-owned by the US investment fund Indigo Partners which also controls US airline Frontier Airlines, Mexico's Volaris and Hungarian airline Wizz Air.
