DUBAI: Golden Fal­con Avi­a­tion, the exclusive aircraft provider of Wataniya Air­ways, has signed a Mem­o­ran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing (MoU) to ac­quire 25 new Air­bus A320­neo Fam­ily aircraft. The agree­ment was signed at the 2017 Dubai Air­show by Dr Ha­mad Al-Tuwai­jri, Chair­man of Golden Fal­con Avi­a­tion, and John Leahy, Chief Op­er­at­ing Of­fi­cer of Air­bus Com­mer­cial Aircraft, in the pres­ence of Ali Al-Fouzan, Chair­man of Wataniya Air­ways.

The A320­neo Fam­ily will con­trib­ute to Wataniya Air­ways’ strate­gic vi­sion to be­come the fastest grow­ing and lead­ing air­line in the coun­try.

Wataniya Air­ways’ Chair­man, Ali Al-Fouzan, com­mented on this ad­mirable feat, “We are look­ing for­ward to up­grad­ing and en­hanc­ing our fleet. The A320­neo Fam­ily will of­fer our cus­tomers the most comfortable and mod­ern cab­ins with 18-inch wide seats while en­sur­ing prof­itabil­ity and ef­fi­ciency. The ad­di­tion of the air­crafts will en­able us to fur­ther strengthen our net­work as we con­tinue to serve our val­ued cus­tomers.”

“This new ad­di­tion of 25 A320­neo Fam­ily aircraft demon­strates the con­fi­dence in our lead­ing sin­gle-aisle aircraft,’’ said John Leahy, Chief Op­er­at­ing Of­fi­cer of Air­bus Com­mer­cial Aircraft. “Its op­er­a­tional ef­fi­ciency and un­ri­valled pas­sen­ger com­fort make it the per­fect choice for Wataniya Air­ways’ fleet ex­pan­sion and growth plans.”

The air­line, which re­sumed op­er­a­tions in July 2017 af­ter a six-year pause, cur­rently op­er­ates a fleet of two A320ceo aircraft serv­ing sev­eral des­ti­na­tions in the Mid­dle East and Europe from its home base in Kuwait.

Ac­cord­ing to the air­line, “the A320­neo Fam­ily in­cor­po­rates the very lat­est tech­nolo­gies in­clud­ing new gen­er­a­tion en­gines and Sharklets, which to­gether de­liver at least 15 per­cent fuel sav­ings at de­liv­ery and 20 per­cent by 2020.”

“With more than 5,200 or­ders re­ceived from 95 cus­tomers since its launch in 2010, the A320­neo Fam­ily has cap­tured nearly 60 per­cent of the mar­ket,” it added.
