CDB Aviation Lease Finance completed the delivery of two Boeing 737-800 aircraft to Ukraine’s flag carrier Ukraine International Airlines. The aircraft delivered from CDB Aviation’s order book with Boeing.
“We are very pleased to welcome UIA to our growing lessee base in Europe, and to provide the flag Ukrainian carrier with two new 737-800 aircraft,” said Patrick Hannigan, CDB Aviation chief commercial officer. “We look forward to growing our partnership with UIA, as we continue to support the airline’s fleet renewal and enhancement of its route network.”
Evgeniya Satska, Ukraine International Airlines communications director, said, “UIA continues its fleet renewal program. With our route network constantly growing, we need modern, reliable aircraft our partners from CDB Aviation and Boeing provide. We trust UIA passengers will appreciate the results of our cooperation.”
Configured with 186 seats in a two-class layout, the two aircraft will be operated across UIA’s medium-haul network, as part of the previously announced plans to replace the airline’s 737 classic fleet and develop new international, medium-haul services.
“Working with our great partner CDB Aviation, we are delighted to support Ukraine International Airlines’ fleet renewal program with the delivery of two more Boeing 737 jets,” said Jeremy Griffin, Boeing Commercial Airplanes vice president of Global Leasing Sales. “The 737’s proven performance and reliability will help UIA continue to expand and grow profitably.”
