Middle East Airlines orders ten A320neo Family aircraft

  • New customer for the world's fastest selling aircraft

Middle East Airlines-Air Liban (MEA), the flag carrier of Lebanon, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for five A320neo and five A321neo aircraft plus eight options. MEA will announce its engine choice at a later date.

“MEA is focused on continuing to grow and improving its profitability at the same time as offering its passengers a very luxurious service,” said MEA Chairman-Director General, Mohamad El Hout. “Adding the A320neo to our fleet means we can achieve all of these goals while benefitting from a 15 percent fuel saving and cost effectiveness.” 


“We thank MEA for their continued confidence in Airbus and are confident that this order for our fuel efficient A320neo will put them ahead of the competition,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. “We’re looking forward to seeing MEA’s A320neo’s operating seamlessly alongside their current generation A320 Family and delivering them with savings through reduced maintenance and pilot training costs that come from the high degree of commonality between the models.”
