Jazeera Airways in talks with Airbus, Boeing for 30-jet order.
Kuwait’s Jazeera Airways is in talks to buy 30 Airbus A320neo or Boeing 737 MAX jets in a deal worth up to $2 billion, the airline’s chairman said on Monday.
Marwan Boodai told Reuters the budget carrier expects to place the long-considered aircraft order by the end of March.
The disclosure of jet order talks comes just two weeks before the start of the five day Dubai Airshow, which will be this year’s biggest aerospace trade show and a spectacle for commercial and military contracts worth billions of dollars.
Jazeera, majority owned by Boodai, has for many years mulled an aircraft order to expand and replace its fleet of leased narrow-body Airbus jets, though never placed an order.
It currently operates a fleet of 17 Airbus A320 jets.
