Flynas selects Safran’s wheels and carbon brakes on its Airbus A320 fleet

Posted 19 July 2022

As part of this long-term agreement, which is an extension of a partnership of more than ten years, Safran Landing Systems will supply Flynas, the Saudi air carrier and a leading low-cost airline in the Middle East, with the wheels, brakes, and carbon heat sinks to equip its Airbus A320neo fleet.

Safran Landing Systems brakes designed for the Airbus A320neo family provide unequalled performance in terms of efficiency, weight, and endurance, thanks to the new SepCarb®IV carbon material and Anoxy®66 oxidation protection systems, which offer ever longer service life and greater reliability. Besides, their optimized weight contributes to the reduction of operators’ fuel consumption and therefore CO2 emissions.

Flynas recently announced that the company's Board of Directors had agreed to increase the volume of new orders for aircraft to 250 aircraft, with which Flynas aims to become the first low-cost airline in the Persian Gulf to enable the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to reach its goal of 100 million annual tourists by 2030.

Bander Almohanna, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Flynas said: “As a world leader in aircraft landing and braking systems, Safran Landing Systems ensures the highest standard of safety and quality which will support us to achieve a very reliable and sustainable growth, to expand locally, internationally and to contribute to the Saudi Civil Aviation Authority's drive to reach 330 million passengers annually, linking the world to the Kingdom through more than 250 destinations.” 

Cédric Goubet, Chief Executive Officer of Safran Landing Systems, added: “We are delighted to be selected by Flynas to equip its growing A320neo fleet with our state-of-the-art wheels and carbon brakes. This new long-term partnership perpetuates a long-standing collaboration with a major Middle East carrier. It strengthens our presence in the region as well as our position as world leader in the wheels and brakes market, in particular on the A320 family, with currently more than 5,000 airplanes equipped by Safran Landing Systems.”
