Jun 19, 2017: Air Lease Corporation, an American aircraft leasing company has signed a firm order for 12 additional A321neo aircraft at the 2017 Paris International Airshow.
The incremental order takes the number of aircraft which ALC has taken delivery of or ordered from Airbus to 279, of which 70 are widebodies and 209 single-aisles.
“The market for A321neos is strong and our customers want more aircraft. This latest order for additional NEOs will fill our customer placement commitments,” said John L. Plueger, CEO and president, Air Lease Corporation.
“The A321neo is delivering substantial fuel burn savings and that is good for the bottom line for operators and for lessors alike. Unbeatable operating economics married with the best in class comfort levels makes the NEO the aircraft of choice – afterall 60 percent market share speaks for itself,” said John Leahy, chief operating officer, customers, Airbus Commercial Aircraft. “
