ABL Aviation, an independent aircraft asset management firm, delivered an Airbus A220-300 to Air France on a long-term lease. The transaction was executed through a Japanese operating lease (JOL) on behalf of a Japanese partner. The recent delivery marks Air France’s 30th A220, hitting the midpoint of the airline’s goal to add 60 Airbus A220s to its fleet.
Almost two years ago, the airline received its first A220. Since then, ABL Aviation has supported five such deliveries, with a sixth planned.
“The fifth A220’s delivery to Air France signifies the completion of the first half of the mandate,” Ali Ben Lmadani, CEO of ABL Aviation, said. “I am optimistic that our partnership with Air France KLM Group will continue strengthening, particularly with six more aircraft deliveries underway. This transaction demonstrates our commitment to Air France and all our airline partners.”
