Fly Leasing, a global leader in aircraft leasing, has announced that all agreements relating to FLY’s acquisition of 55 Airbus narrow-body aircraft and seven CFM engines on operating lease, and the option to purchase an additional 20 Airbus A320neo family aircraft, were approved by the shareholders of AirAsia Group Berhad (“AirAsia”) at their extraordinary general meeting on May 14, 2018.
