Spirit Airlines (NK, Fort Lauderdale Int'l) announced in its annual results for 2020 that it has accelerated deliveries of six A320-200Ns to 2022.

One delivery has been rescheduled from the fourth to the second quarter. Otherwise, this year's plan has not been altered.

Following the amendment, the airline will take a total of seventeen A320-200Ns in 2022.
