Golden Falcon Aviation, the exclusive aircraft provider of Wataniya Airways, has inked a $2.8bn deal with Airbus for the order of 25 A320neo aircraft.
Announced during the Farnborough International Airshow 2018, which is set to run from the 16 – 22 July, the agreement was signed by Rakan Al-Tuwaijri, CEO of Golden Falcon Aviation, and Eric Schulz, Airbus chief commercial officer.
A statement from Airbus indicated that the order followed an earlier memorandum of understanding that was agreed upon at last year’s Dubai Airshow.
The deal is one of several announced in the opening days of the annual airshow. Other key deals inked by the aircraft manufacturer includes Sichuan Airlines ordering 10 A350 XWB aircraft and Goshawk Aviation Limited securing an order for 20 A320neo.
Managing a fleet of four A320 aircraft, Kuwait-based Wataniya Airways resumed its operations back in July 2017 and today serves destinations across Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia.
