South Korean start-up carrier KAIR Airlines has placed and confirmed the order to buy eight new A320ceo aircraft from Airbus. It is to launch the new low-cost operation. The airline is set to begin its low-cost international services by next year to cater to the North East Asian region.

KAIR Airlines representative director and chairman Byung Ho Kang said,

“We see enormous potential for the development of a low-cost model linking central South Korea with destinations in China, Taiwan and Japan. KAIR Airlines will focus on point-to-point services at low fares while offering passengers a modern and fun product offering. Brand new A320 aircraft will be perfect for our business model and customers, combining the lowest operating costs with the widest cabin in the single aisle segment.”

From previously being capable of carrying 100 to now 240 passengers, Airbus’ A320 family of aircraft features 18in-wide seats in economy as standard. Airbus has so far received more than 13,000 orders for its A320 family aircraft. The company KAIR Airlines have delivered a new wide-body A330-200 aircraft to Iran Air.

Airbus customers chief operating officer John Leahy said,

“We have been impressed by the business model developed by KAIR Airlines. We are confident that the efficiencies offered by the A320 aircraft will contribute to a successful launch by KAIR Airlines, bringing more choice for passengers flying in the North East Asian region.”
