Air Lease Corporation (ALC), an aircraft financing and leasing company, has taken delivery of its first brand new A320 aircraft directly ordered from Airbus and to be leased to and operated by Air New Zealand.

Air New Zealand has designed a one-off livery for the new aircraft as part of its Crazy About Rugby campaign, evoking the colours of New Zealands world famous national rugby team, the All Blacks. New Zealand this year hosts the Rugby World Cup.

It is the first of two A320s powered by IAE to be delivered to ALC and operated by Air New Zealand.

We are very pleased to be delivering the first A320 from our aircraft order with Airbus, to Air New Zealand. The aircrafts bold all black livery speaks to the success of Air New Zealand as one of the worlds most innovative and leading airlines, said Steven F. Udvar-Hazy, ALCs Chairman and CEO.

This is the first of our new Airbus domestic fleet, with thirteen more A320 aircraft due to be delivered over the next five years, added Rob McDonald, Air New Zealands Chief Financial Officer. The aircraft will enable us to increase capacity on routes that are beginning to face capacity constraints at some airports during peak times. 

The aircraft is part of an ALC order for 31 A320s and 20 A321s placed at the Farnborough International Air-Show in 2010.

The A320 Family comprises the A318, A319, A320 and A321.
