Aviation Capital Group Delivers A321neo on Long-Term Lease to JetSMART

Aviation Capital Group delivered one new Airbus A321neo aircraft on long-term lease to JetSMART as part of a three-aircraft sale and lease back transaction between the two companies.

Powered by Pratt & Whitney PW1133G-JM engines, this aircraft is the first A321neo to join the JetSMART fleet. The A321neo incorporates new generation engines and Sharklets, which together deliver more than 20% fuel savings and CO2 emissions reduction, as well as 50% noise reduction.

“We are honored to continue supporting JetSMART in their growth in Chile and Latin America with the delivery of this new fuel-efficient Airbus A321neo,” Marine Benoit, vice president of marketing for the Latin American region at Aviation Capital Group, said.

“The delivery of our first A321neo marks the beginning of a new era for JetSMART to further reduce costs and carbon footprint and one more step to become the leading ULCC in South America. We value the support from ACG on our vision to reach 100 aircraft by 2028,” Estuardo Ortiz, CEO of JetSMART, said.
