Air Arabia has signed a firm order for 120 Airbus A320neo family aircraft at Dubai Airshow 2019.

The agreement includes 73 A320neo and 27 A321neo jets. In addition to that, Air Arabia ordered twenty Airbus A321XLR aircraft. The aircraft type with an extended range was announced during the 53rd Paris Air Show in June.

The addition of the A320neo, A321neo and A321XLR complements our existing fleet and allows us to expand our service to farther and newer destinations […].Adel Al Ali, Group Chief Executive Officer of Air Arabia

Air Arabia took delivery of its first Airbus A321LR in April this year. As an all-Airbus operator, Air Arabia currently operates A320ceo and the aforementioned A321LR aircraft. In November 2018, the airline presented a revised livery.
