Aircraft lessor AerCap holdings N.V. has upped its Airbus A320neo portfolio after signing a firm agreement to buy 50 additional aircraft. This transaction brings AerCap’s firm orders for the A320neo Family aircraft to a total of 270, owned and on order.
AerCap Holdings N.V. has announced it has confirmed the placement of five Embraer E190-E2 jets to Air Astana, the national carrier of Kazakhstan. The aircraft, on long term lease from AerCap’s order book with Embraer, will begin delivering to Air Astana in the last quarter 2018.
AerCap is the launch lessor customer of Embraer’s E-Jets E2 second generation of this family of commercial aircraft with a total of 50 Embraer E190-E2s and E195-E2s on order.
The E2 aircraft offer greater range and operational efficiency which will support Air Astana’s growing network and open new market opportunities.
The E190 will allow Air Astana to open up smaller markets in southern Russia, the Caucasus, and Central Asia including smaller domestic routes.
Air Astana received its first original E190 in 2011.
