Back in 2018, OV signed an agreement with Airbus for six A320neo, of which five were to be acquired on lease.

At the time, the airline operated 120 aircraft across 14 different regional and global destinations.

The aircraft on order were meant to enable the carrier to boost its growth on both a regional and global level.
