Chairman of Jazeera Marwan Boodai says: ”Jazeera Airways is pleased to extend its long-term relationship with Airbus further with this significant new order. We will effectively double our current fleet size to 35 aircraft by 2026.

”The airline has pulled out of the pandemic strongly in Q3 with a return to profitability. We have exciting expansion plans ahead, which will further boost our contribution to the Kuwait economy and in particular the travel sector.”

Jazeera chief executive Rohit Ramachandran says: “By taking both A320neo and A321neo options we will have great flexibility to extend our network to medium and longer haul destinations from Kuwait.”

Cirium fleets data show Jazeera has nine A320neos, eight of which are currently in-service, alongside eight A320s.
