Nordwind Airlines is now studying the A321neo and A330neo to be the backbone of its future fleet, as it looks to modernize and homogenize its portfolio, which is currently made up of several A321s, A330s, B737 NGs, and B777s. The renewal strategy, which will focus on commonality, efficiency and modernity of the fleet, is set begin next year once the new aircraft are secured from leasing companies.
Delivery of the two new aircraft types is expected in the 2019-21 timeframe.
Also, Nordwind recently secured three B737-800s from Dublin-based CDB Aviation, which will be used to grow the airline's domestic scheduled operations. Additionally, Nordwind leased two A330-200s this week from undisclosed operating lessor.
Nordwind Airlines is a Russian scheduled and charter airline based at Moscow Sheremetyevo International Airport.
