Air Arabia and CFM International have signed a comprehensive nine-year agreement under the terms of which CFM will provide time and material support for the airline’s fleet of six LEAP-1A-powered A321neo aircraft.

Air Arabia (PJSC) is the first and largest leading low-cost carrier (LCC) in the Middle East and North Africa. Air Arabia commenced operations in October 2003 and currently operates a fleet of Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft, serving routes from five hubs in the UAE, Morocco and Egypt.

The agreement builds on a successful relationship with CFM that includes a fleet of 52 CFM56-powered A320ceo aircraft and six A321neos LRs. Air Arabia is the first LEAP-powered A321neo operator in the Middle East.
