Middle East Airlines orders 10 A320neo family aircraft

Middle East Airlines-Air Liban (MEA) signed (12-Jul-2012) a MoU for five A320neo and five A321neo aircraft plus eight options. MEA will announce its engine choice at a later date. MEA chairman-director general Mohamad El Hout said, “MEA is focused on continuing to grow and improving its profitability at the same time as offering its passengers a very luxurious service. 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.” The carrier currently has a fleet of four A330-200s, four A321s and nine A320s.
