KUWAIT CITY, KUWAITKuwait Airways announced that it has restructured an existing order with Airbus for 31 jetliners instead of 28 in which it has also reduced orders for A350-900 jets.

Chief Executive Ma'an Razoq told a press conference the restructured aircraft order, estimated to be worth $3 billion, would save the loss-making carrier a total of $200 million.

The new deal, which includes some aircraft already delivered, is for nine A320neos, six A321 neos, three A321neo-LRs, four A330-800neos, seven A330-900neos, and two A350-900s.

"All jets will be delivered by the end of 2028," Razoq said.

The original 28 jet order was for 15 A320 neos, eight A330-800neos, and five A350-900s, according to Airbus' website.

Of the original order, the airline has already taken delivery of six A320neos and two A330-800neos.

Kuwait Airways' current Airbus fleet comprises 20 jets in total from previous and newer generation aircraft families.
