Syphax Airlines (Sfax) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to acquire three Airbus A320neo aircraft. The order is the first time an African based carrier has ordered the NEO and marks a significant breakthrough for Airbus in one of the world’s fastest developing markets. Syphax have also ordered three A320ceo aircraft. The aircraft will be powered by CFM engines.
The airline already operates two Airbus A319s and three A320 aircraft and will shortly commence operating a leased A330-200.
