In 2016, with the arrival of seven new A330-300 widebody jets, the long-haul fleet was significantly expanded and passenger comfort was increased, with a state-of-the-art seating and entertaining system, an outstanding galley and cabin crews known for their comfort and care. As part of the airline's aggressive approach, two Airbus A320neo and four A321neo will be added to its fleet in just over a year.
Deliveries of the second A320neo are planned for April 2017, followed by the first and second A320neos in the second trimester. The third part of the A4321neo is expected to come before the end of 2017, the forth part is due in the first three months of 2018. Orders for these planes were placed several years ago.
This revised fleet will allow the carrier to streamline its revised concept for streamlined and more effective operations.
