Saudi Arabia’s low-cost airline flyadeal has taken delivery of its 30th aircraft — an Airbus A320neo — at a special ceremony held in Toulouse.
The ‘keys’ to flyadeal’s newest acquisition named Al Taj (The Crown), were handed over at the European aircraft manufacturer’s delivery center in southern France.
The aircraft later departed with the flyadeal delegation onboard for the five-hour inaugural delivery flight to Jeddah, one of the airline’s operational bases.
The 186-seat aircraft, in a 3-3 all-Economy Class configuration, is the latest of a 30 A320neo aircraft order placed by parent Saudia Group in 2019 earmarked for flyadeal operations.
Current flyadeal’s fleet is made up of the A320 family aircraft with an average age of just over two years old.
