Today Air Lease Corporation (NYSE: AL) announced long-term lease placements for two new Airbus A321neo LR aircraft with HiSky. Scheduled to deliver to the European carrier in March 2023 from ALC’s order book with Airbus, these two new A321neo LRs join one Airbus A319 and four A320s currently on lease to the airline from ALC and its managed vehicles, Blackbird I and II.
“ALC is pleased to announce this placement with HiSky for two new A321neo LRs,” said David Beker, Senior Vice President of Air Lease Corporation. “HiSky launched in 2020 with used A320 family aircraft exclusively provided by ALC and they have grown their business consistently since then. The airline is now ready to take the next step in their growth plans and we are happy to support this expansion with two brand-new A321neo LRs."
“The addition of these two new A321neo LR aircraft is the right ingredient to sustain our growth strategy in 2023,” said Iulian Scorpan CEO of HiSky. “We are grateful to ALC for the opportunity to operate the industry’s most modern aircraft offering top performance, range, and fuel-efficiency. Starting in April 2023, HiSky passengers will benefit from several long-range nonstop flight solutions to be announced this autumn.”
