AviaAM Leasing, a global aviation holding company engaged in commercial aircraft acquisition, leasing and sales, sold two Airbus A321-211 aircraft with leases attached. Both aircraft are being operated by Canadian low-cost leisure airline Air Transat, which is based in Montreal. The aircraft were delivered to the new lessor on August 14.
“We were delighted to add Air Transat to our customer portfolio when we leased the first two A321 aircraft to the operator earlier this year,” Mantas Meizneris, VP sales at AviaAM Leasing, said. “The results of this cooperation gave our company a strong [belief] in the possibility to have more mutually beneficial deals in the future.”
The two A321’s are currently under a 10-year operating lease agreement that has been successfully transferred to the new owner. The aircraft are powered by two CFM56 engines previously delivered ahead of schedule to Air Transat in Kaunas International Airport in Lithuania.
