Dublin-based Avolon has firmed up its contract for 15 A330neo aircraft. The aircraft leasing firm became one of the launch customers of the A330neo after signing its initial commitment in July 2014 at the Farnborough International Airshow.
“The A330neo is a sound investment for lessors, who like Avolon are focused on offering their customers the most modern, economic and comfortable aircraft,” said John Leahy, Airbus chief operating officer, Customers. “The A330neo with its highly competitive economics, in addition to the already flawless credentials of today’s A330, is going to be a real hit with operators around the world in the medium range segment.”
The A330-800neo and the A330-900neo are two new members of the Airbus Widebody Family launched in July 2014 with first deliveries scheduled to start in Q4 2017.
