GECAS delivered an A320neo aircraft to Colorful Guizhou Airlines in Tianjin, China.
This is the second LEAP1A- powered A320neo aircraft to be delivered to the airline from the lessors’ order book.
In June 2019, GECAS and Colorful Guizhou Airlines announced the agreement to lease four A320neo with deliveries beginning in late 2019 and continuing into 2020. The first A320neo was delivered in October 2019. This second delivery means that Colorful Guizhou Airlines now operates a fleet of 11 aircraft, including GECAS’ two A320neos and nine E190s.
“We are excited to have taken delivery of our second A320neo leased from GECAS,” said Fanyu Liu, CEO of Colorful Guizhou Airlines. “The arrival of this aircraft coincides with the summer season. It adds capacity which allows us to expand our operation from regional routes into trunk routes, better serving our local passengers, and better serving the growing tourism in the Guizhou province.”
“We are delighted to deliver our second A320neo to Colorful Guizhou,” said Li Liu, GECAS’ EVP and regional manager, Greater China. “This aircraft will help add capacity as Colorful Guizhou looks to a strong recovery from COVID-19. GECAS is committed to supporting and continuing to work with Colorful Guizhou for the recovery of the Chinese aviation industry from the global pandemic.”
