Kuwait Airways counts on A350-1000 and A330-900 for its longhaul fleet renewal


Toulouse - Kuwait Airways signed an agreement with Airbus to buy three new aircraft. The agreement is an amendment to an existing order of 25 aircraft (10 A350-900, 15 A320neo family aircraft), which was signed in 2013.

The deal brings the number of total aircraft ordered to 28 from the European manufacturer.

Following the delivery of ten new Boeing 777-300ER, Kuwait Airways removed its four Airbus A340-300 from the fleet immediately.

According to concurring media reports, Kuwait Airways has modified an existing order with Airbus adding three A330neo. The new deal now includes 28 aircraft (five A350-1000, eight A330neo, five A320neo, and ten A321neo). No A350-900 from the previous order.
