Air Arabia’s order for 44 A320s (34 placed in 2007 and 10
placed in 2008) will make the carrier one of the region’s
largest A320 operators and equip the carrier with one of the
region’s most modern fleets.
“Our aim to become one of the world’s leading
airlines in terms of profit margin, innovation, reputation, and
operational excellence has taken a step closer to reality with
today’s delivery of our first of 44 Airbus A320 aircraft. As
we receive more aircraft, we will expand our network and operations
in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa,” said Sheikh
Abdullah Bin Mohammed Al Thani, Chairman, Air Arabia.
Air Arabia already operates a fleet of 23 leased A320s. From its
three main hubs, Sharjah in the UAE, Casablanca in Morocco and
Alexandria in Egypt, the carrier serves a network of some 65
international routes from Europe to the Middle East, the Indian
Subcontinent, Central Asia and North Africa. In 2011, Air Arabia
will open a fourth hub in Amman, Jordan.
