Kuwait Airways welcomes its first Airbus A320neo

Toulouse, France - The national carrier of Kuwait has taken delivery of its first Airbus A320neo aircraft.

After this delivery, Kuwait Airways has 14 more A320neo jets on order waiting to be delivered.

The first three aircraft were initially set for delivery on March 2019, but they have been postponed due to delays in the production line. The airline will receive the other two by the end of this year.

Besides Airbus's best-selling single-aisles, Kuwait Airways has also orders on its backlog for eight Airbus A330-800 and five Airbus A350-900.

The carrier is one of the two customers of the A330-800 with newly revived African flag carrier Uganda Airlines.

Kuwaiti carrier's current fleet comprises 13 A320-200, five A330-200, ten Boeing 777-300ER, and one A320neo.

With the arrival of the A320neos, Kuwait Airways will phase out some of its leased A320-200s.
