Avolon, a leading aircraft lessor headquartered
in Dublin, Ireland, has firmed up an order for 75 Airbus A320neos
and 25 A321neos.
The agreement is the single largest order for
Airbus aircraft ever placed by Avolon.
The agreement takes Avolonís cumulative orders
with Airbus to 284 aircraft (240 single-aisles and 44 widebody
aircraft) including the A321neo, the A330neo and the A350 XWB.
Důmhnal Slattery, Avolon CEO, said, ďOur
order for 100 A320neo family aircraft builds on our leading
industry position and reflects our ambition to become the global
leader in the sector. We continue to see robust demand from our
customers for the A320neo family globally. This is consistent with
our own market research and global fleet forecast. This order
affirms our belief in the medium-term market outlook and the
strong growth prospects for our business.Ē
The new order for 100 aircraft, together with
the 22 single-aisles and four wide-bodies already delivered,
increases Avolonís Airbus backlog to 258, the largest of any
