FEB 9, 2023 - 7:17 am
CDB Aviation, a wholly-owned Irish subsidiary of China Development Bank Financial Leasing, delivered two Boeing 737-800 aircraft to a new customer, Milan-based Neos S.p.A. (Neos).
Neos, which operates services from Italy and Europe to the Americas, Asia and Africa, plans to deploy the two aircraft, configured with 186 single class seats, on intra-European and intercontinental routes.
“We look forward to building a strong working partnership with our newest European customer in Italy, Neos,” Paul Boyle, head of commercial of EMEA at CDB Aviation, said. “These two Boeing aircraft are well suited to serve the carrier’s short- and medium-haul network.”
“We are excited and proud to welcome the second aircraft leased from CDB Aviation into our fleet. These two aircraft are a perfect fit to support our strategic short-haul fleet renewal plan and commercial operations planned for 2023,” Marco Brusa, fleet planning manager at Neos, said. “We thank the CDB Aviation team who has shown a high level of commitment since the negotiation phase, and we hope that this is just the beginning of a long and fruitful collaboration.”
“With the accelerating pace of air passenger traffic’s recovery, Neos has the potential to seize on the nascent rebound in air travel and regional tourism,” Peter Goodman, chief commercial officer at CDB Aviation, said. “We are very pleased to have collaborated with the Neos team on this transaction as part of the airline’s ongoing fleet upgrade initiative. We look forward to building on our relationship and supporting their ambitious growth trajectory in the future.”
