Jazeera Airways received delivery of tenth and eleventh A320neo aircraft from Airbus at Kuwait International Airport. This brings the airline’s fleet to a total of 19 aircraft from 7 in 2018.“We are very happy to be taking delivery of the first A320neo aircraft as part of Jazeera’s larger orderbook that will effectively double the fleet size to 35 aircraft by the year 2026 in support of our expansion plans, as well as boost our contribution to Kuwait’s travel sector,” said Boodai speaking to guests onboard the new aircraft.

“With the challenges of the past two years behind us, Jazeera has returned with a strong performance, offering customers further choices with new destinations being opened throughout the year,” added Boodai.

“We thank the Directorate General for Civil Aviation, regulatory authorities and partners for supporting Jazeera Airways for over 17 years in providing travellers with a reliable travel service,” shared Boodai.


The low-cost carrier has placed a new fleet order with Airbus for 20 A320neos, 8 A321neos and 5 further options. The order will effectively double Jazeera’s current fleet size to 35 aircraft, supporting the airline’s expansion plans to further boost its contribution to Kuwait’s travel sector. Jazeera launched eight new routes in 2021, serving popular tourist and expat destinations.

“Jazeera is focusing on expanding its fleet with these latest aircraft from our partner Airbus, offering more environmentally friendly neo models, which provide a range of benefits including 18 per cent fuel-saving, quieter engines with 50 per cent less CO2 emissions,” stated Rohit Ramachandran, CEO.

“Our growing fleet will support our expansion plans for Q4 2022 and into 2023 with new destinations and increasing frequencies on existing popular routes. The A320neo has already proven itself to be a great airplane for us and we are pleased to work with Airbus and our leasing partners to make these additions to our fleet,” added Ramachandran.

Jazeera had placed the order for the 28 aircraft with Airbus in November 2021. The agreement is valued at USD 3.4 billion (KD 1.3 billion).
