Airbus seals order for two A320neos from Air Sénégal

The airline will launch operations next year

European plane maker Airbus has signed a memorandum of understanding with Air Sénégal for two A330neo aircraft at the Dubai Airshow.

Airbus said the deal makes Air Sénégal the first carrier in Africa to select the A330neo line.

The airline will launch operations next year and plans to use the planes to build its medium and long-haul network.

“Aviation is a catalyst for economic development and this purchase demonstrates Senegal’s ambitions for economic growth in line with the country’s strategy to accelerate progress towards emergence (Plan Emerging Senegal),” said Philippe Bohn, CEO of Air Sénégal.

The deal follows a record order announced by Airbus yesterday for 430 A320neos from US aviation investor Bill Franke’s Indigo Partners.

The order, worth $49.5bn at list prices, comprises 273 A320neos and 157 A321neos and will be spread between Indigo’s four airlines.
