Combined with our recent A330neo aircraft, this new Airbus fleet reveals Air Senegal’s ambition to offer the best travel experience for our passengers.Mr. Ibrahima Kane, Air Senegal CEO
Earlier in the year, Air Senegal became the first African airline to fly the Airbus A330neo. Currently, the airline operates a fleet of Airbus A319, A330neo and ATR72.
EasyJet has exercised purchase rights to increase their fleet of A320neo by 12 new aircraft. The agreement takes the carrier’s total order for the A320neo Family to 159 aircraft, this brings their overall orders for Airbus single aisles to 480 A320 Family.
EasyJet currently operates a fleet of 333 A320 Family aircraft (39 A320neo Family and 294 A320ceo Family), which is Europe’s largest A320 Family fleet and also Europe’s largest customer for the NEO.
At the 2019 Dubai Airshow flynas, Saudi Arabia’s first low-cost airline, has signed a firm order for 10 A321XLR. The agreement was signed by Bandar Almohanna, flynas Chief Executive Officer, and Christian Scherer, Airbus’ Chief Commercial Officer.
In 2016, flynas signed an agreement for 80 A320neo Family and currently operates a fleet of 27 A320ceos and 4 A320neos.
GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS), the commercial aircraft leasing and financing arm of General Electric, has signed a firm order for 12 wide-body Airbus A330neos and 20 long-range single-aisle A321XLR.
The agreement for the A321XLR includes an order for 13 new planes and the up sizing of seven A321s in its existing backlog. The latest order takes the total number of A330 Family aircraft ordered by GECAS to 45 and all variants of the A320 Family to 588.
Having one of the world’s most respected and influential lessors invest in the A321XLR and the A330neo, speaks volumes on their global appeal, versatility and solid value as an asset.
