Wataniya Airways resumed operations in July after a six-year hiatus and uses a fleet of two A320ceos on a network covering the Middle East and Europe.

John Leahy, Chief Operating Officer Customers, Airbus Commercial Aircraft, said: “This new order of 25 A320neo Family aircraft demonstrates the confidence in our leading single-aisle aircraft.  Its operational efficiency and unrivalled passenger comfort make it the perfect choice for Wataniya’s fleet expansion and growth plans.”
