Airbus Updates No.49/11

ALC takes delivery of the first of 51 Airbus A320 Family on order

 
Air New Zealand becomes first operator with aircraft in all black rugby livery

Air Lease Corporation (ALC), the aircraft financing and leasing company, has taken delivery of its first brand new A320 aircraft directly ordered from Airbus and to be leased to and operated by Air New Zealand.

Air New Zealand has designed a one-off livery for the new aircraft as part of its Crazy About Rugby campaign, evoking the colours of New Zealand’s world famous national rugby team, the “All Blacks”.

It is the first of two A320s powered by IAE to be delivered to ALC and operated by Air New Zealand.
“We are very pleased to be delivering the first A320 from our aircraft order with Airbus, to Air New Zealand.  The aircraft’s bold all black livery speaks to the success of Air New Zealand as one of the world’s most innovative and leading airlines” said Steven F. Udvar-Hazy, ALC’s Chairman and CEO.

“This is the first of our new Airbus domestic fleet, with thirteen more A320 aircraft due to be delivered over the next five years,” said Rob McDonald, Air New Zealand’s Chief Financial Officer. “The aircraft will enable us to increase capacity on routes that are beginning to face capacity constraints at some airports during peak times.

“We expected something special to mark the first Airbus delivery to Steven Udvar-Hazy’s new company, ALC, and the Air New Zealand A320 lives up to this. The livery is every bit as stunning as the performance and comfort of the aircraft. We wish both ALC and Air New Zealand a championship year,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers.

The aircraft is part of an ALC order for 31 A320s and 20 A321s placed at the Farnborough International Air-Show in 2010.

The A320 Family (A318, A319, A320 and A321) is recognised as the benchmark single-aisle aircraft family. With close to 7,000 aircraft sold, and more than 4,500 aircraft delivered to more than 320 customers and operators worldwide, the A320 Family is the world’s best-selling single-aisle aircraft family.

Airbus Updates No.44/11

GE Capital Aviation Services orders 12 A330 Aircraft

 
GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS), the commercial aircraft leasing and financing arm of General Electric [NYSE: GE], has signed a firm order for 12 additional long-range A330-300 aircraft. This new order brings the total number of A330s ordered by GECAS to 32.

“This order adds to our existing portfolio of A330 aircraft,” said Norman C. T. Liu, GECAS President and CEO. “A key part of our strategy is to expand our wide-body product offerings to satisfy customer demand.”

"This repeat order from GECAS underscores the ongoing popularity of the A330, and highlights the strong market demand for the A330-300 in particular" said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. "The unbeatable economic efficiency and proven passenger appeal of this aircraft make it the perfect choice in today's market for medium capacity routes."

Airbus aircraft share a unique cockpit and operational commonality, allowing airlines to use the same pool of pilots, cabin crews and maintenance engineers, bringing operational flexibility and resulting in significant cost savings.

With a true wide-body fuselage allowing very high comfort standards, the A330-300 is able to accommodate seat and class configurations to suit diverse customer requirements. It has a range of up to 5,600 nm / 10,400 km with a typical 300 passenger load. Highly efficient and optimised for the medium – to long range market, the A330-300 offers the best balance between range and cost. The A330-300 remains the most economic means of flying 300 or so passengers on medium range routes in true long haul comfort. Orders for the aircraft stand at more than 480.

The A330 Family, which spans 200 to 400 seats for the passenger variants, also includes Freighter, VIP, and Military Transport/Tanker variants, has now attracted more than 1,100 orders.
