CALC to Purchase 36 A320s
Airbus on Wednesday announced it has received a memorandum of understanding for 36 current generation A320 aircraft from China Aircraft Leasing Company (CALC).
The MOU allows CALC to give operators the option to select sharklets wingtips as add-on for their future fleet of A320s.
“This is an important milestone for CALC,” said Mike Poon, CEO of CALC. “We have a long-term commitment to the aviation industry and are very pleased to establish a relationship with Airbus. This sizeable aircraft order will lay the foundation for CALC to achieve our ambition to become a major aircraft lessor in the region.”
The new order will grow CALC’s fleet of Airbus aircraft to more than 50.
