Wataniya Airways signes Memorandum to buy 25 Airbus A320
DUBAI, Nov 14 (KUNA) -- Wataniya Airways on Tuesday agreed a deal to buy 25 Airbus A320neo Family aircraft, known for its fuel-efficiency.
Golden Falcon Aviation, the Kuwaiti privately-owned airline's exclusive aircraft provider, signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) at the Dubai Airshow 2017.
Signing the deal was Dr. Hamad Al-Tuwaijri, Chairman of Golden Falcon Aviation, and John Leahy, Chief Operating Officer Customers, Airbus Commercial Aircraft in the presence of Ali Al Fouzan, Chairman of Wataniya Airways.
The airline, which resumed operations in July 2017 after a six-year pause pause, currently operates a fleet of two A320ceo aircraft serving several destinations in the Middle East and Europe from its home base in Kuwait.
"We are looking forward to upgrading and further enhancing our fleet. The A320neo Family will offer our customers the most comfortable and modern cabins with 18-inch wide seats whilst ensuring profitability and efficiency," Wataniya Chairman Ali Al-Fouzan said.
"The addition of the aircraft will enable us to further strengthen our network as we continue to serve our valued customers," Al-Fouzan added.
According to the airline, "the A320neo Family incorporates the very latest technologies including new generation engines and Sharklets, which together deliver at least 15 percent fuel savings at delivery and 20 percent by 2020." "With more than 5,200 orders received from 95 customers since its launch in 2010, the A320neo Family has captured nearly 60 percent of the market," it added. (end) smr.sd
