ILFC Buys A320neo – Cancels A380s

Airbus today announced that the aircraft leasing company, ILFC, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding for 100 A320neo Family aircraft, comprising 75 A320neo and 25 A321neo types. Pratt & Whitney PurePower PW1100G engines have been selected to power at least 60 of them. ILFC is the first customer for the A321neo, the largest member of the A320neo Family.

In parallel with this order, ILFC announced that it cancels its purchase of ten A380s. “With 104 wide bodies on order and fewer than a dozen single aisles it makes perfect sense to rebalance our order book and position ILFC strategically on the fuel-efficient neo ,” said Henri Courpron, ILFC Chief Executive Officer.
