LONDON – Following its order for 40 A320neo Family & 20 A220 aircraft, Aviation Capital Group has finalized the A220 side of the deal.
The 40 A320neo Family aircraft was already a firm order, with the A220s being under a Memorandum of Understanding.
Commenting on this deal was Steven Udvar-Hazy, the Senior VP of OEM Relations & Market Development at ACG:
“We are delighted to expand our partnership with Airbus through this A220 order”.
“Our airline customers will appreciate the A220’s environmental friendliness, passenger comfort, and competitive operating economics.”
Also commenting on the news was Christian Scherer, the Airbus sales chief:
“This order for 20 A220s from Tokyo Century’s Aviation Capital Group reflects the potential of the aircraft as a sound investment, including for investors based in the Asia Pacific region”.
“We thank and congratulate our partners at ACG. With fuel and emissions efficiency ever more a discriminating investment choice, the A220 really stands out.”
“Equally gratifying is the market feedback that the A220’s cabin is becoming the passengers’ darling in the regional and small single-aisle segments.”
This latest agreement brings the total number of firm orders for the A220 to beyond 700, which will help continue to add to the healthy backlog.
