Sharjah-based Air Arabia has signed a firm order for 120 Airbus aircraft.

The order comprises 73 A320neos, 27 A321neos and 20 A321XLRs.

Air Arabia says the new aircraft will support its multi-hub growth strategy. “This new milestone underpins not only our solid financial fundamentals but also the strength of our multi-hub growth strategy that we have adopted over the years while remaining focused on efficiency, performance and passenger experience,” said Adel al-Ali, group CEO, Air Arabia.

Air Arabia is an all-Airbus operator with a total fleet of 54 A320 family aircraft including the A321LR. Aircraft will feature a comfortable single-class cabin.

In 2017, Air Arabia signed a contract to lease six Airbus A321neo aircraft from US-based Air Lease Corporation over a period of eight years.
