Volaris, Interjet Sign Leasing Deals for A320s
Mexican airlines Volaris and Interjet have signed purchase-and-lease back transactions with GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS) for new Airbus A320 aircraft.
GECAS, the aircraft leasing and financing of GE, said the seven A320s for Volaris come from the airline’s existing order book with Airbus and will be delivered beginning later this year.
Interjet signed a leasing agreement for six new A320s, two of which were delivered by GECAS in December 2012. The remaining aircraft will be delivered to Interjet in 2018. The airline signed a deal with Airbus in November 2012 for 40 A320neo aircraft, scheduled for delivery starting in 2018. More
