CDB Aviation Lease Finance DAC has completed the delivery of two Boeing 737-800 aircraft to Ukraine International Airlines (UIA).
The aircraft were delivered from CDB Aviation’s order book with Boeing, with CDB Aviation’s chief commercial officer Patrick Hannigan welcoming UIA to the growing lessee base in Europe, adding: “We look forward to growing our partnership with UIA, as we continue to support the airline’s fleet renewal and enhancement of its route network.”
The two aircraft are configured with 186 seats in a two-class layout, and will be operated across UIA’s medium-haul network as part of the airline’s plans to replace the 737 classic fleet and develop new international medium-haul services.
Evgeniya Satska, Ukraine International Airlines communications director, commented: “UIA continues its fleet renewal program. With our route network constantly growing, we need modern, reliable aircraft our partners from CDB Aviation and Boeing provide. We trust UIA passengers will appreciate the results of our cooperation.”
“Working with our great partner CDB Aviation, we are delighted to support Ukraine International Airlines’ fleet renewal program with the delivery of two more Boeing 737 jets,” said Boeing Commercial Airplanes vice-president of global leasing sales Jeremy Griffin. “The 737’s proven performance and reliability will help UIA continue to expand and grow profitably.”
