Jazeera Airways has taken delivery of its seventh Airbus A320neo aircraft from Airbus in Toulouse, France. The airlines’s fleet now includes 15 aircrafts with seven A320neo. Two more A320neo will be delivered this year. The A320neo has a range of benefits which include fuel-saving, longer range flights, quieter engines with less CO2 emissions, additional payload and lower operating costs, it said.
Jazeera Airways Chief Executive Officer, Rohit Ramachandran, said: “Jazeera continues to take delivery of new aircraft as part of its expansion plans. Appetite for travel has been strong across our network during the summer season, as restrictions are lifting in line with the positive progress in vaccination programs.”
All delivered aircrafts are fitted with the airline’s standard cabin configuration including its signature leather seats.
Jazeera Airways operates commercial and cargo flights out of its Jazeera Terminal T5 at Kuwait International Airport, and flies to 50 popular destinations across the Middle East, Asia, Europe and Africa comprising high-demand business, leisure, family and weekend destinations.
In 2021, the airline became the first Gulf-based low-cost carrier (LCC) to launch a direct service to London Heathrow, United Kingdom, which it operates with an A320neo aircraft. Jazeera also launched in 2021 new destinations to Colombo, Addis Ababa, Bishkek, Tashkent, Sarajevo and Antalya.
