AerCap executed agreements with Delta Air Lines for the long-term lease of seven Airbus A350-900 aircraft, delivering in Q3/21 and Q4/21. All seven aircraft are powered by Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-84 engines.
“This is a significant transaction for AerCap with one of the largest and most successful airlines in the world. We are delighted to support Delta’s ambitious commitment to sustainability by leasing these seven Airbus A350 widebodies, which are proven to significantly reduce carbon emissions and external noise footprint over previous-generation aircraft,” Aengus Kelly, CEO of AerCap, said. “We thank Ed and the team at Delta for the confidence and trust they have placed in AerCap, and we look forward to working with them for many years to come.”
“We value our relationship with AerCap, which supported this investment in Delta’s future,” Ed Bastian, CEO of Delta Air Lines, said. “As we look past the pandemic, Delta’s disciplined, innovative approach to fleet renewal positions us for growth as travel demand returns while enhancing the customer experience and supporting our sustainability commitments.”
