Spring Airlines, low cost Shanghai-based airline, has taken delivery of a new A320 at Airbus (Tianjin) Delivery Centre on lease from ICBC Financial Leasing, a leasing company owned by the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China.

The newly received aircraft brings the carriers total Airbus A320 fleet to 50.

The aircraft, the 210th A320 Family aircraft assembled at the Airbus Tianjin Final Assembly Line, is powered by CFM 56 engines and is configured with 180 economy class seats.

We are pleased to expand our all Airbus A320 fleet to 50 as we are going to celebrate our 10th anniversary in July this year. From the first to the 50th, our partnership with Airbus has lasted for 10 years. Airbus is our closest partner, said Wang Zhenghua, Chairman of Spring Airlines. The low cost mode that we initiated in China 10 years ago has proved to be successful and it is becoming more and more popular today. The Airbus A320 plays a key role in the successful development of low cost operations in China with its high reliability, unrivaled economics and comfort in its class.

Derived from Spring Tourism Company, Spring Airlines took its maiden flight in 2005 as one of the first private enterprises entering into the airlines business and first positioning itself as a low cost carrier.
