Riyadh based National Air Services (NAS) has signed a firm contract to buy 20 Airbus A320 Family aircraft for the company’s budget airline arm, nasair, following an earlier agreement signed at the 47th International Paris Air Show in Le Bourget. The agreement includes 18 purchase rights.

Nasair is the first budget airline in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and began services in February 2007. The carrier now flies to 21 domestic destinations.
“The agreement with Airbus is strategic for NAS services to grow. Our new Airbus A320 family fleet will equip us to fulfil passenger demand using the most reliable, efficient and comfortable aircraft on the market,” said Taher Agueel, President, NAS.

NAS currently manages a fleet of over 47 aircraft. Six of these are Airbus A320 Family aircraft. All the new Airbus aircraft will be deployed to nasair. This order coupled with NAS’s other commitments for 60 corporate jets signed in 2007, will eventually grow the fleet to over 127 aircraft.

Is this in addition to the Saudia announcement for 20 A320s with 8 options and another 20 leases ?

RIYADH, Nov 12 (Reuters) - Saudi Arabian Airlines will announce the purchase of 22 Airbus A320 aircraft on Monday with an option to buy eight more, al-Eqtisadiah newspaper reported.

The state-owned carrier will also lease 20 A320s including 10 from General Electric Co (GE.N: Quote, Profile, Research), the paper reported, without saying how it got the information.

An official announcement will be made at the Dubai air show on Monday, it said.

I'm not sure. I never heard of Nasair.
They already operate 6 A320.

The Saudi MoU is for 22.
