EasyJet has implemented its plans to convert some A319 orders to A320s, switching 25 over to the larger variant, according to Airbus's latest July sales figures.

The UK budget carrier, which until now had only ever ordered the A319, outlined plans earlier this year to switch over to the A320. The move has now been confirmed by Airbus, with EasyJet's backlog of 110 A320 family aircraft comprising 85 A319s and 25 A320s, plus options on a further 88.

When EasyJet acquired former GB Airways, it acquired nine A320s and six A321s, but these are being disposed of due to their non-standard configuration.
