KUWAIT: Jazeera Airways, Kuwait’s leading low-cost airline, operating regionally and internationally, today signed an agreement with Airbus to provide the airline with components support for up to 29 A320ceos and A320neos aircraft as part of the Airbus Flight Hour Services (FHS).
The agreement was signed during the Dubai Airshow 2019 by Jazeera Airways chairman Marwan Boodai and Airbus chief commercial officer Christian Scherer.
Airbus will manage components services which will cover: pool, on-site stock at main base, warehousing, logistics, component maintenance service, and engineering.
Boodai said: “We are pleased to be expanding our relationship with Airbus which started in 2004, enabling us today to benefit from world-class services to maintain our operational excellence. The new support service will ensure efficient and effective availability of spare parts for our young and growing fleet, in turn improving reliability and further improving our already excellent on-time performance.”
Remi Maillard, SVP of Airbus Services, said: “We are very pleased to welcome Jazeera Airways as a new member of our FHS programme. Leveraging our extensive global components logistics infrastructure and real-time spares inventory visibility, coupled with our engineering know-how, we look forward to working together to help achieve the highest reliability and on-time performance of Jazeera’s fleet operations.”
Jazeera Airways will take delivery of two new A320neo aircraft this month to bring its fleet size up to 13 aircraft by year end, including four A320neos. Another scheduled order of four A320neo aircraft will be delivered in 2020.
