Your plane (9K-CAQ) is powered by the CFM International Leap-1A engines. The Irish-based landlord, Avolon, confirmed that it is the source of the aircraft, adding that the A320neo is the company's fourth Jazeera rental plane.

Avolon has 20 A320neos in order with the European fuselage.

Several carriers from the Middle East have aircraft of the A320neo family in order. Qatar Airways had originally been scheduled to receive the first A320neo customer, but the planes were not delivered.

CEO Rohit Ramachandran said: "This is the first of three A320neo aircraft scheduled to be delivered to Jazeera Airways in May 2019, supporting our continued expansion of the network to cover destinations that are about 5 or 6 hours from Kuwait."

"The A320neo introduces new updates that allow us to save on costs while improving performance and increasing the range covered by the single aisle aircraft," said Ramachandran.

The first flight of the Jazeera A320neo, J9 176, left Kuwait for Dubai at 1:10 pm (GMT + 3) today. Jazeera Airways operates an Airbus A320 fleet and now A320neo, all equipped with a two-class cabin configuration comprising an Executive Class and an Economy Class, the Kuwaiti budget provider said.

Business Class offers travelers priority check-in, an exclusive cabin with free and complementary menu for the middle seat and up to 50 kg of luggage allowed. Jazeera Economy Class offers travelers generous legroom in modern leather seats and a 30kg baggage allowance, he added.
