LONDON – Jazeera Airways has today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Airbus for 28 A320neo Family aircraft at the Dubai Air Show.
The deal breakdown will see the airline receive 20 A320neos and eight A321neos.
Commenting on this move was Marwan Boodai, the Chairman at Jazeera Airways who said that this is all about fleet growth:
“Jazeera Airways is pleased to extend its long-term relationship with Airbus further with this significant new order.”
“We will effectively double our current fleet size to 35 aircraft by 2026. The airline has pulled out of the pandemic strongly in Q3 with a return to profitability. “
“We have exciting expansion plans ahead, which will further boost our contribution to the Kuwait economy and in particular the travel sector.”
Also commenting on the news was Airbus sales chief, Christian Scherer, who offered some insight into the benefits behind the A320neo Family program:
“We are proud to extend our partnership with Jazeera Airways through this latest agreement which will add an additional 28 Airbus aircraft to its all-Airbus fleet”.
“The A320neo Family is, without doubt, the best platform to support Jazeera Airways’ growth plans.”
“This is the perfect illustration of how Airbus helps escort the growth of its successful customers.”
This order now brings Airbus to a total of 394 units sold at the airshow so far, with the manufacturer certainly on a trajectory to exceed 400 by the end of trading.
