Jazeera Airways signs for 28 A320neo family aircraft at Dubai Airshow
Kuwait-based Jazeera Airways has committed to 28 A320neo family aircraft, Airbus announced on November 16, 2021.
The memorandum of understanding comprises 20 A320neos and eight A321neos, Airbus said on day three of the 2021 Dubai Airshow.
“Jazeera Airways is pleased to extend its long-term relationship with Airbus further with this significant new order,” said Marwan Boodai, Chairman Jazeera Airways, in a statement. “We have exciting expansion plans ahead, which will further boost our contribution to the Kuwait economy and in particular the travel sector.
The airline, which started operations in 2005 and has an all-Airbus fleet, plans to double its current fleet size to 35 aircraft by 2026. Jazeera Airways highlighted that it returned to profitability in the third quarter of 2021.
Chief executive officer Rohit Ramachandran added: “By taking both A320neo and A321 neo options we will have great flexibility to extend our network to medium and longer haul destinations from Kuwait, offering passengers more choice to travel and enjoy popular destinations as much as underserved ones.”
