GECAS Delivers Primera its First A321neo

Primera Air, a low-fare Nordic airline, took delivery of its first Airbus A321neo, on lease from GECAS. This aircraft is the first of three from the GECAS orderbook that Airbus will deliver to the airline in 2018.

“Given the outstanding operational efficiency, comfort and range of the aircraft, the A321neo is ideally suited to our cross-Atlantic travel from both the UK and France,” said Andri Már Ingólfsson, CEO and president of Primera Travel Group.

“GECAS is delighted to be delivering Primera’s first new A321neo today,” said Felix McArdle, GECAS senior vice president – Sales. “We have been partnering with them on fleet solutions for 11 years now and this latest delivery of the ground-breaking A321neo with LEAP engines is the latest chapter and a very important development for Primera. We wish them every success with the operation.”

“Incorporating the latest technology engines, such as the CFM Leap-1A, along with aerodynamic advances and cabin innovations, the A321neo offers a reduction in fuel consumption of at least 15% per seat from day one and 20% by 2020,” said Kimon Sotiropoulos, vice president Sales Northern and Central Europe from Airbus.
