Wataniya Airways’ aircraft provider Golden Falcon Aviation has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Airbus for 25 A320neo family aircraft.
The agreement was signed at the Dubai Air Show by Dr Hamad Al-Tuwaijri, chairman of Golden Falcon Aviation, and John Leahy, chief operating officer, customers for Airbus Commercial Aircraft, with Ali Al Fouzan, chairman of Wataniya Airways, witnessing the signing.
The airline resumed operations in July this year and currently operates two A320ceo aircraft serving destinations in the Middle East and Europe from its home base in Kuwait.
Al Fouzan said the A320neo family aircraft would “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”.
Leahy said the A320s’ operational efficiency and passenger comfort made them “the perfect choice” for Wataniya’s fleet expansion and growth plans.
