All four single-aisle jets carry the green Al Maha livery, including Qatar Airways’ Oryx logo on the tailfin, and will be put into operation on routes across the Middle East.

“It is a moment of significant pride to be welcoming the first aircraft of the new Al Maha Airways fleet, let alone four such aircraft in the same day,” said Qatar Airways’ CEO, Akbar Al Baker.

“These new A320 aircraft will offer passengers the opportunity to travel onboard the latest and most modern aircraft in the skies.”

These four new A320s will take Qatar Airways’ total fleet count to 156 aircraft.
