Global Crossing Airlines Group to Lease Pair of Airbus A321 Passenger-to-Freighter Aircraft

Global Crossing Airlines Group signed an order for the long-term lease of two Airbus A321 passenger-to-freighter aircraft from Petrus Aerovista A321 Holdings, a joint venture between Aerovista and Petrus Aviation. The signing was held at the ISTAT Americas Conference in San Diego.

Aerovista arranged the acquisition of the two Airbus A321 passenger aircraft, and both aircraft will be converted with 321 Precision Conversions. The first aircraft (MSN 1451) will commence conversion in Q1/23 and enter service with Global Crossing Airlines Group in August 2023. The second aircraft (MSN 1503) will commence conversion in Q2/23 and be placed into service by Global Crossing Airlines Group in November 2023.

“We are delighted to be working with Aerovista on these two A321 freighters. Aerovista is a well-established lessor who understands the needs and requirements of an airline like GlobalX, and we look forward to taking delivery of these freighters and, hopefully, additional aircraft from them,” Ed Wegel, chair and CEO of Global Crossing Airlines Group, said.

“It is a pleasure for us to support the growth ambitions of GlobalX. The Airbus A321 freighters are some of the most efficient single-aisle freighters on the market and we are excited to see the success these aircraft will bring to expand GlobalX’s operations. We look forward to a successful partnership with the team,” Apandi Lakhiyalov, chairman and managing director of Aerovista, said.
