Air Lease Corporation announced today long-term lease placements for two new Airbus A320neo and two new Airbus A321neo LR aircraft with Peach Aviation Limited (Japan).
The four new Airbus aircraft are scheduled to deliver to Peach starting in 2020 through 2022 from ALC’s order book with Airbus.
In related news, Peach Aviation Limited announced the conclusion of a contract to install the LEAP-1A engine manufactured by CFM International to power a total of ten aircraft – eight of which are the Airbus A320neo model while the other two are A321LR middle-haul models – from fiscal 2020.
These LEAP-1A engines are projected to boost fuel efficiency by 15% compared to existing versions, while also bolstering comfort by reducing noise. This latest engine also enables us to curtail our nitrogen oxide (NO x) and Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
The CFM56 manufactured by CFM is currently mounted on Peach’s A320ceo aircraft. The recent adoption of the LEAP-1A engine for our A320neo and A321LR planes marks our second engine type to be adopted from CFM.
