Nile Air Orders 9 A321

Thu Nov 15, 2007 4:26 pm

Nile Air, a startup Egyptian airline that plans to launch operations in the 2008 first quarter, placed a firm order for nine A321s valued at nearly $800 million .
The Cairo-based carrier plans to serve Riyadh, Jeddah, Medina, Dammam, Kuwait, Dubai, Doha and Bahrain with passenger and freight service.

Is this a Low cost?

Some more info: their own A321s will only arrive in 2012 (IMO they weren´t able to obtain earlier delivery slots) is talking to lessors about acquiring several A321s on lease. The own order for 9 frames is expected to be firmed in the coming weeks.
Flown: A319/320/321,A332/3,A380,AT4,AT7,B732/3/4/5/7/8,B742/4,B762/763,B772,CR2,CR7,ER4,E70,E75,F50/70,M11,L15,S20
