Air Arabia considers fleet expansion

Posted 16 May 2017 · Add Comment

Air Arabia may look at expanding its fleet, with a decision to be made by early next year, reports ch-aviation.

The Sharjah-based carrier took delivery of its latest A320 in March this year, after firming up a deal with Airbus for an additional five aircraft in November 2016.

Despite a 10% decrease in revenue in the first quarter, CEO Adel Abdullah Ali is optimistic about the airline's future, especially its Moroccan subsidiary. "As we go into the second quarter and then summer I’m optimistic that things will be much brighter," Ali is reported as saying. "We’ve been growing pretty fast in our hub in Morocco. It’s been doing very well for us. Morocco this year will probably be our key fast-growing market."
