Jazeera Airways has ramped up its expansion plans by ordering six more Airbus A320s. The Kuwaiti low cost carrier, which launched services in late October, currently operates two A320s. Another two are already due to arrive in Kuwait in the summer of next year. The airline will use the additional CFM-powered A320s to increase its services on existing routes within the Middle East, as well as to begin routes to new destinations, including Egypt and India. “We have shown that, with the Airbus A320, we can deliver a quality product at an affordable price, and we are now looking to spread that success more widely,” said Jazeera Airways’s chairman & CEO, Marwan Boodai. Also at the airshow, Boodai signed a 10 year Total Technical Support services contract with Lufthansa Technik, which will cover its entire current and future fleet. Under the deal, Lufthansa Technik will provide complete engineering and maintenance support, as well as total component support. An MRO specialist will also assist Jazeera in setting up an EASA Part 145 certified line maintenance base in Kuwait.
