CDB Aviation Introduces A320neo to Turkish Airlines

CDB Aviation, a wholly-owned Irish subsidiary of China Development Bank Financial Leasing (CDB Leasing), delivered one Airbus A320neo to Turkish Airlines, the flag carrier of Türkiye. The transaction marks the introduction of the A320neo to the carrier’s fleet.

“We are delighted to be leasing Turkish Airlines’ first A320neo, which will contribute toward growing and modernizing the carrier’s flight operations on both domestic and international routes,” Paul Boyle, head of Europe, the Middle East and Africa at CDB Aviation, said. “Introducing the A320neo marks a new step forward in the airline’s ongoing fleet modernization process.”

“As one of the world’s leading airlines, supporting our successful and stable performance with new generation aircraft that we continue to include in our fleet brings us closer to our goals,” Levent Konukcu, chief investment and technology officer at Turkish Airlines, said. “We would like to thank our business partners, such as CDB Aviation, for their support in this direction.”

With the recently awarded IATA IEnvA Stage 2 certificate, Turkish Airlines has become a pioneer among airlines in undertaking sustainability-focused projects for every stage of its flight and ground operations in recent years.

“With unprecedented reductions in fuel burn, emissions and noise, the A320neo is among the most efficient and quietest aircraft for short- and medium-haul routes on the market today,” Peter Goodman, chief commercial officer at CDB Aviation, said. “The A320neo is well suited to support Turkish Airlines’ ambitious growth journey and contribute toward reaching its sustainability goals by lessening the environmental footprint of its flight operations.”
