Saudi low-cost carrier flyadeal has announced that it will order 30 A320neo aircraft and options for a further 20 A320neo family aircraft, in response to continuing growth in passenger demand across domestic, regional and international routes. Deliveries of the flyadeal aircraft will commence in 2021.
The allocation of the new aircraft to flyadeal follows from the agreement which Saudi Arabian Airlines Corporation (SAUDIA) signed during the Paris Air Show in June this year. This order will result in flyadeal operating an all- Airbus A320 fleet in the future.
Originally flyadeal had selected 30 Boeing 737 Max 8s plus options on another 20 for its fleet-expansion but hadn’t finalize the order before the grounding of the MAX in March.
