Speaking to Reuters on the sidelines of the IATA AGM currently being held in Miami, Rovinescu said his Airline was considering sourcing five more A321 Jets to add to the five already on order.

"The ultimate objective is to have 25 narrowbodies, and up to 10 of those could be larger A321s," he said adding the five A321s may also be sourced from the second market.
