Air Lease will deliver one new Airbus A321-200neo LR aircraft on long-term lease to Air Arabia. Featuring CFM International LEAP-1A engines, this is the first of six A321-200neo LRs scheduled to deliver to Air Arabia through 2020 from ALC’s order book with Airbus.
This A321-200neo LR is also ALC’s first Airbus long-range A321neo to deliver to the Lessor.
“We are pleased to announce the delivery of this first of six new A321-200neo LR aircraft with Air Arabia and be the first to introduce the A321LR to the region today,” said Steven F. Udvar-Házy, executive chairman of Air Lease. “This delivery is particularly significant as this is ALC’s first A321-200neo LR aircraft. A key addition to Air Arabia’s fleet, the A321-200neo LR offers dynamic long-range optimization and increased capacity as the airline expands into new destinations.”
“This new A321-200neo LR aircraft delivery strengthens our long-standing relationship with Air Arabia as the airline continues to excel as one of the premier airlines in the Middle East with the most technologically advanced, fuel-efficient aircraft,” added Alex Khatibi, EVP of Air Lease.
