DUBLIN, IRELAND, June 4, 2019 -- Zephyrus Aviation Capital ("Zephyrus"), announced that it has acquired an Airbus A330-300 aircraft on lease to Thai AirAsia X, a new customer for Zephyrus. The aircraft is equipped with Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines, and the A330-300 is a new model addition to the Zephyrus fleet.
This transaction is the first aircraft acquisition for Zephyrus outside of the 21 aircraft ZCAP 2018-1 ABS facility that closed in October 2018, and which has completed a steady stream of novations since.
"We are thrilled to welcome Thai AirAsia X to the Zephyrus family of airline customers," said Damon J.
