DUBLIN – March 25, 2019 – CDB Aviation, a wholly owned Irish subsidiary of China Development Bank Financial Leasing Co., Limited (“CDB Leasing”), announced today the delivery of the first of two Airbus A330-200 aircraft to Spain’s third-leading, long-haul airline Wamos Air. The second aircraft is slated for delivery in June 2019.
“We look forward to our collaboration with our new European customer Wamos Air in expanding their fleet to meet the growing demand for wet lease operations,” said CDB Aviation President & Chief Commercial Officer Patrick C. Hannigan. “Over the recent years, airline seat volumes between Europe and Central America have grown faster than any market to Latin America from Europe charter/leisure airlines, and Wamos Air is at the center of meeting growth demand in this segment.”
“We are very pleased with this new agreement with CDB Aviation and the addition of another two Airbus A330-200 aircraft to our current fleet, starting with this first delivery. These two units will be fully reconfigured very soon into new cabins, allowing us to offer a great product to our clients,” said Wamos Air Chief Executive Officer Enrique Saiz. “We look forward to exploring new leasing opportunities with CDB Aviation that will lead us to consolidate our Airbus A330-200 fleet.”
