Kuwait’s Jazeera Airways inks $3.4bn deal with Airbus for 28 passenger jets

Kuwaiti private airline Jazeera Airways has placed orders for 28 passenger jets with Airbus for a value put at $3.4 billion, reports say.
The board of directors of the airline, local media Al Rai reported, citing a disclosure published on the Kuwait Stock Exchange website, has approved the deal.
The jets include 20 A320neos and eight A321neos.
The company also agreed to purchase two aircraft engines, CFM LEAP1-A26 spare engines, with an accumulated worth of $32.3 billion, aimed at aiding operations.
Both agreements, the airline further notes, will bring a positive impact on the corporation in the medium and long term.
