DUBAI, (Reuters) – United Arab Emirates-based Air Arabia, the Middle East’s largest low-cost carrier, plans to buy between 34 and 50 aircraft from manufacturers this month, the firm’s chief executive said on Sunday.

“We are planning to purchase between 34 and 50 aircraft directly from airplane makers … in November,” Adel Ali told Reuters by telephone from Kuwait. He declined to name the plane makers.

The airline previously said that it was considering buying 34 short-haul aircraft from European planemaker Airbus or U.S. rival Boeing in September.
