Avalon completes its deal for 20 A330neo aircraft with Airbus.

Avalon completes its deal for 20 A330neo aircraft with Airbus.

Avolon has formally placed an order with Airbus for 20 brand-new A330neo airplanes. A letter of intent struck at the Paris Airshow in June is formalized by the order. Delivery of the new aircraft is anticipated to take place between 2025 and 2028.

After placing its entire current orderbook, Avolon, which served as the A330neo program’s launch client in 2014, is benefiting from robust customer demand for additional widebody aircraft. Airlines are exploring options to upgrade to the A330neo aircraft, which has a greater range of about 13,300km (7,200 nautical miles), 25% reduced fuel consumption, and CO2 emissions. There are currently around 1,400 A330ceo aircraft in operation.

In accordance with the agreement with Airbus, 50 of the A320neo aircraft that Avolon has ordered from Airbus will be upgraded to the larger A321neo variant.

“We see a high level of widebody demand within the delivery window for these aircraft,” said Andy Cronin, CEO of Avolon. These new aircraft will assist our future expansion objectives and enable us to offer options for carriers wishing to switch from older A330ceo aircraft to the more fuel-efficient A330neo due to our already established widebody pipeline. The order strengthens our strong partnership with Airbus as the A330neo’s launch client and our status as the industry’s top lessor.

“It’s fantastic to see Avolon once again commit additional investment in the A330neo aircraft and lead the lessor market reordering widebody aircraft,” said Christian Scherer, Chief Commercial Officer and Head of International at Airbus. With this dedication for the addition of 20 more aircraft to its portfolio, Avolon’s vision and timing could not be more ideal. The strong wave of growth and replacements that we are currently observing across all markets will benefit Avolon, and we are happy to continue working with them.
