On day one of the Paris Airshow at Le Bourget, Saudi Arabian low-cost carrier Flynas has firmed up orders for up to 30 additional Airbus A320neo family aircraft. The airline now has orders for up to 120 A320neo family aircraft, including 10 Airbus A321XLRs; the latest variant of the A320neo family, which is currently in its flight test program, is set for deliveries to commence in 2024.
Flynas CEO Bander Almohanna noted the “unbeatable economics, longer range capability and the most spacious single aisle cabin” as one of the key decision points behind the order. Christian Scherer added that the order would help the airline to grow in Saudi Arabia’s “fast-growing market”.
Flynas currently operates a fleet of 32 Airbus A320neos, and 13 previous generation A320-200 aircraft. The airline also operates four wide-body Airbus A330-300s.
