Tunisia's Syphax Airlines Orders Three A320neo Aircraft

First neo Order By An African Airline

Syphax Airlines, a new Tunisian-based airline, has confirmed its order to buy three A320neo. The order is the first time an African based carrier has ordered the neo and marks a significant breakthrough for Airbus in one of the world’s fastest developing markets. Syphax have also ordered three A320ceo aircraft. The aircraft will be powered by CFM engines.

“Syphax Airlines is focused on continuing to grow its Tunisian, North Africa and Europe routes, and an expansion of its network to Asia and North America, through its hubs in Tunis and Sfax while offering passengers a luxurious service,” said Syphax Chairman and Director General, Mohamed Frikha. “Adding the A320neo to our fleet means we can achieve all of these goals while benefitting from a 15 percent fuel saving and cost effectiveness.”

“We thank Syphax Airlines for their confidence in Airbus and for being the first African carrier to place an order for our NEO aircraft,” said John Leahy, Chief Operating Officer, Customers. “We’re looking forward to seeing Syphax’s A320neo aircraft operating seamlessly alongside their current A320 fleet, delivering to them savings through reduced maintenance and pilot training costs as a result of the high degree of commonality between the aircraft models.”
