LONDON – Airbus has announced that Jazeera Airways has firmed up its Dubai Air Show order for 28 A320neo Family aircraft.
This deal was originally a Memorandum of Understanding.
Commenting on the deal was Christian Scherer, the Airbus sales chief:
“Jazeera Airways is a long-standing partner of Airbus and we are delighted to see them grow their all-Airbus fleet with an additional 28 A320neo Family aircraft”.
“The A320neo Family offers the right size, economics, and customer comfort for Jazeera Airways to serve its growing customer base and open new routes competitively.”
“We salute team Jazeera for their remarkable development and thank them for their trust and for this important order”.
Also commenting on the news was Rohit Ramachandran, the CEO of Jazeera Airways:
“We are pleased to confirm this latest order with Airbus”.
“By taking both A320neo and A321neo versions we will have great flexibility to extend our network to medium and long haul destinations from Kuwait, offering passengers more choice to travel and enjoy popular destinations as much as underserved ones”.
