CDB Aviation Lease Finance delivered two new Airbus A320neo aircraft to India-based, low-cost carrier Go Airlines and the second new Airbus A321-200 aircraft to South Korean carrier Asiana Airlines.
The two aircraft delivered to Go Airlines represent the delivery of the initial five of a total of 14 A320neos placed on long-term lease with the airline as part of a purchase and leaseback transaction announced in November. The remaining nine aircraft will be delivered to GoAir through the end of 2019.
“By delivering two A320neos to GoAir, CDB Aviation successfully completed the initial installment of five A320neo deliveries to the airline planned for this year,” said CDB Aviation Chief Commercial Officer Patrick Hannigan. “We look forward to delivering the remaining nine aircraft over the next couple of years, while assisting GoAir with further optimizing their fleet through our long-term partnership.”
In addition to the two A320neo aircraft, CDB Aviation delivered a second A321-200 to Asiana Airlines, marking a major milestone on the lessor’s growth trajectory by having three Airbus A320 family aircraft delivered on the same day. The aircraft will be sub-leased to the airline’s subsidiary Air Seoul, representing the first new Airbus aircraft to join the low-cost carrier’s all-A321 fleet.
“The completion of three aircraft deliveries in one day is a great feat for our company, which further demonstrates our steadfast commitment to securing and building a fleet of aircraft to offer airlines the customized fleet options they need, one aircraft or an entire fleet at a time,” Hannigan said.
