CDB Aviation, a wholly owned Irish subsidiary of China Development Bank Financial Leasing (CDB Leasing), has delivered the first of a fleet of nine Airbus A321neo aircraft to Indian carrier IndiGo, as part of a purchase-and-leaseback transaction.

The A321neo, produced in Hamburg, Germany, marks Airbus’ 1,000th A320neo Family aircraft delivery, signifying a historic milestone for its best-selling single-aisle fleet. 

As IndiGo continues to increase connectivity across its network, the A321neo aircraft, equipped with the Pratt & Whitney PW1133G turbofan engines and configured with a 222-seat layout, are expected to generate lower operating costs, while availing the carrier of the advantages of reduced environmental impact and enhanced passenger experience. CDB Aviation anticipates the remaining eight aircraft to be handed over by the end of January 2020.
