Airbus confirms Jazeera Airways and ACG orders in Singapore

Orders involve 20 A320neo, eight A321neo and 20 A220 that had been pre-set in 2021

Airbus has signed definitive sales agreements for 48 single-aisle jets at the opening of the Singapore Airshow.

Kuwait carrier Jazeera Airways confirmed a Memorandum of Understanding signed in 2021 that includes the order for 20 A320neo and eight A321neo.

“By taking both A320neo and A321neo versions we will have great flexibility to extend our network to medium and longer haul destinations from Kuwait, offering passengers more choice to travel and enjoy popular destinations as much as underserved ones,” said Rohit Ramachandran, Jazeera Airways Chief Executive Officer.

Lessor Aviation Capital Group (ACG), controlled by Tokyo Century Corporation, has signed a firm contract for 20 A220 jets in addition to an order for 40 A320neo family aircraft completed in December.

We are delighted to expand our partnership with Airbus through this A220 order,” said Steven C. Udvar-Hazy, Senior Vice President, OEM Relations & Market Development at ACG. “Our airline customers will appreciate the A220’s environmental friendliness, passenger comfort, and competitive operating economics.”

Now the A220 family already has more than 700 firm orders, Airbus said.
