Upon arrival, the aircraft was greeted by Jazeera Airways Chairman and CEO Marwan Boodai, who welcomed the new aircraft saying ‘the Airbus A320 is the one of the most efficient aircraft in the world, and we are building a fleet of it to reinforce our efficient operations, which in turn will enable us to pass on our savings to our travelers in the form of low fares throughout the year.’
