Syphax Airlines signed (18-Jun-2013) a MoU for the purchase of three A320neos and three A320ceos, powered by CFM engines. The airline is the first based in Africa to order the A320neo. Syphax Airlines chairman and director general Mohamed Frikha said, "Syphax Airlines is focused on continuing to grow its Tunisian, North Africa and Europe routes, and an expansion of its network to Asia and North America, through its hubs in Tunis and Sfax while offering passengers a 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." Syphax Airlines currently operates two A319s and three A320s. [more - original PR]
