Air Arabia receives two new Airbus A320 aircraft
July 09, 2018: Air Arabia has received two new A320 aircraft from Airbus, bringing its total operating fleet to 53 aircraft.
The new A320 aircraft have been put straight into service across the carrier’s over 150 destination network served from the main carrier hubs in the UAE, Morocco and Egypt. The airline has introduced 12 new routes from its hubs in the UAE, Morocco and Egypt in the first half of 2018.
The latest Airbus A320 arrived on schedule from the Airbus facility in Toulouse, France, marking the completion of all deliveries this year.
Adel Al Ali, Group chief executive officer, Air Arabia said: “The delivery of our last two aircraft for 2018 marks a significant step in the development of our fleet expansion strategy especially as we added 12 new routes this year.”
The A320 family is the world’s most modern single-aisle aircraft family.
The next delivery will be Air Arabia’s first A321neo LR to join the fleet early next year. Adding the A321 to the fleet will enable the Middle East and North Africa’s low-cost carrier to extend its fleet reach and therefore enter new markets as well as better serve existing high-density routes.
