Air Lease Corporation (ALC) has placed a pair of Airbus A320-200neo aircraft with Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) on long-term lease, with the single-aisle jets planned for delivery in November 2019 and April 2020.
The new CFM LEAP-1A26-powered aircraft are part of the airline’s continued programme to further modernise its fleet and grow its network.
Steven F. Udvar-Házy, executive chairman of Los Angeles-based ALC, said the company “looks forward to building our long-term relationship with SAS as they continue to add new aircraft to modernise their fleet and grow their network, as well as maximising their competitive advantage in the market.”
Marc Baer, ALC’s executive vice-president, added, “ALC expects these two Airbus A320-200neo aircraft additions will be key to SAS as the airline continues to enhance their fleet operations and provide their passengers with elevated comfort and excellent service.”
