Jul 13 15
Kuwait Airways received its seventh and last Airbus A320 CEO aircraft, as the outcome of the agreement of leasing 12 Airbus of similar type. This marks the start of the major fleet renewal plan. The A320 single-aisle jetliner family is the single-aisle aircraft family and its versatility will support Kuwait Airways' range of services. The airline has also decided to equip its new A320 fleet with Airbus' innovative Runway Overrun Prevention System (ROPS) technology. This on-board cockpit technology, which Airbus has pioneered independently over several years, increases pilots' situational awareness during landing, reduces exposure to runway excursion risk and if necessary, provides active protection. The new aircraft, which has been leased by Kuwait Airways recently, has a total of 130 seats with 114 Economy Class and 16 Business Class seatings. Kuwait Airways has added these New A320s to Amman, Bahrain, Beirut, Cairo, Dammam, Doha, Jeddah, Medina and Riyadh Middle Eastern sectors. Further, Kuwait Airways has received its second A330 in part of the fleet renewal plan.
