Kuwait Airways firms up order

The national airline of Kuwait has ordered 25 aircraft including 10 A350-900 and 15 A320neo family aircraft as part of the airlines’ fleet renewal strategy. Kuwait Airways already operates three A320, three A310, five A300 and four A340 Family aircraft. The A320neo is offered as an option for the A320 family and incorporates more efficient engines and large "sharklet" wing tip devices, which together will deliver up to 15 percent in fuel savings.
