The delivery follows the airline's rapid growth over the last two years, including the development of the airline's second hub in Dubai, and the launch of 25 non-stop routes in its first two-years of operations.

The aircraft is one of the new generation of Airbus A320s, modelled on the improved interior of the brand new super jumbo - the Airbus A380, and incorporates wider overhead storage, a wider cabin feel and improvements in the cabin's design.

The aircraft is the sixth of a firm order with Airbus for 40 brand new A320s placed at the 2007 Le Bourget Paris Air Show. On delivery of all 40 aircraft in 2014, Jazeera Airways will be the largest Airbus A320 operator in the Middle East.

Jazeera Airways' Chairman and CEO Marwan Boodai said: "We are committed to building a fleet of brand new Airbus A320s, which are designed to keep operating costs low."
