Farnborough 2018: Wataniya Airways secures 25 Airbus A320neo planes

Golden Falcon Aviation, the exclusive aircraft provider of Wataniya Airways, has confirmed an order for 25 Airbus A320neo family aircraft.

The firm order was signed during the Farnborough International Airshow by Rakan Al-Tuwaijri, chief executive officer of Golden Falcon Aviation, and Eric Schulz, Airbus chief commercial officer.

The order follows an earlier memorandum announced at last year’s Dubai Airshow.

Wataniya Airways resumed operations in July 2017 and currently operates a fleet of four A320 family aircraft serving destinations in the Middle East, Europe, Africa and Asia from its home base in Kuwait.

The A320neo family aircraft will support the airline’s vision to become the fastest growing and leading airline in the country.

With more than 6,100 orders received from over 100 customers, the A320neo family has captured some 60 per cent share of the market.
