Dubai, UAE - Saudi Arabian low-cost operator Flynas has firmed up an order today (Nov. 19) for ten A321XLR at the Dubai Air Show.
The Saudi carrier had signed a letter of intent with Airbus for the purchase of the planes this year in June during Paris Air Show.
The deliveries will begin in 2025.
With this order, Flynas' backlog stands for 90 A320 family aircraft.
Since its launch in 2007, Flynas follows an ambitious business plan to grow its fleet in order to add new destinations to its line network and increase flight frequencies on its existing routes.
Last year, the airline carried around 6.6 million passengers. With the arrival of the A321XLRs, Flynas will be able to launch new routes to more distant destinations in Europe and Asia.
As of November 2019, the carrier has 32 A320 aircraft in service, including four A321neo.
