Low-cost carrier Air Arabia has finalised long term agreement with Air Lease Corporation (ALC) for six Airbus A321neos. The new jets come from ALC’s existing order book and are scheduled for delivery to the Sharjah-based airline between January and October 2019.
“We are delighted to have signed these six new A321neo aircraft leases with our good friends at Air Arabia. These new jets will complement the core A320 family fleet that Air Arabia operates,” said Steven F Udvar-Házy, Executive Chairman of Air Lease Corporation. “Air Arabia will now be able to expand into new destinations as well as increase capacity on their highest density routes with the most modern aircraft in this category.”
Air Arabia currently operates 37 Airbus A320ceos. It also has subsidiaries in Egypt (one A320), Jordan (two A320s) and Morocco (five A320s).
