AerCap has now leased two A350 XWB aircraft to Vietnam Airlines, two to Cathay Pacific Airways and now, with the latest delivery, a further two to Ethiopian Airlines.
“We are pleased to deliver the second A350 XWB to Ethiopian Airlines, a longstanding customer of AerCap,” said Philip Scruggs, AerCap president and chief commercial officer. “The A350 aircraft is one of the most in-demand aircraft in the world and we are proud to be one of the largest owners of this aircraft type. We look forward to continuing our successful relationship with our friends and partners at Ethiopian Airlines as the airline continues to enhance its fleet.”
