MAR 26, 2019 - 6:35 am
CDB Aviation, a wholly owned Irish subsidiary of China Development Bank Financial Leasing, delivered the first of two Airbus A330-200 aircraft to Spain’s third-leading, long-haul airline Wamos Air.
The second aircraft is slated for delivery in June 2019.
“We look forward to our collaboration with our new European customer Wamos Air in expanding their fleet to meet the growing demand for wet lease operations,” said CDB Aviation President and CEO Patrick C. Hannigan. “Over the recent years, airline seat volumes between Europe and Central America have grown faster than any market to Latin America from Europe charter/leisure airlines, and Wamos Air is at the center of meeting growth demand in this segment.”
“We are very pleased with this new agreement with CDB Aviation and the addition of another two Airbus A330-200 aircraft to our current fleet, starting with this first delivery. These two units will be fully reconfigured very soon into new cabins, allowing us to offer a great product to our clients,” said Wamos Air CEO Enrique Saiz. “We look forward to exploring new leasing opportunities with CDB Aviation that will lead us to consolidate our Airbus A330-200 fleet.”
Wamos Air boasts air capacity of more than 1.6 million seats a year flown on a fleet of six Boeing 747-400 and five Airbus 330-200. Wamos Air’s business model is diversified in three different areas: regular flights, charter operations, and wet lease operations.
