Wataniya Airways acquires 25 Airbus A320neo family aircraft

Kuwait-based Wataniya Airways is acquiring 25 Airbus A320neos through its exclusive aircraft provider Golden Falcon Aviation.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed during the 2017 Dubai Air Show.

The airline resumed operations in July 2017 with two Airbus A320ceo aircraft, after halting all flights in 2011.

“We are looking forward to upgrading and further enhancing our fleet,” said Ali Al Fouzan, chairman of Wataniya Airways. “The A320neo family will offer our customers the most comfortable and modern cabins with 18-inch wide seats whilst ensuring profitability and efficiency. The addition of the aircraft will enable us to further strengthen our network as we continue to serve our valued customers.”

Wataniya is adding the new aircraft in its bid to become the fastest growing and leading airline in Kuwait.

“This new order of 25 A320neo family aircraft demonstrates the confidence in our leading single-aisle aircraft,” said John Leahy, chief operating officer Customers, Airbus Commercial Aircraft. “Its operational efficiency and unrivalled passenger comfort make it the perfect choice for Wataniya fleet expansion and growth plans.”

The airline is currently planning to serve 16 destinations in Egypt, UAE, Lebanon, Jordan, Iran, India, Pakistan and Europe.
