CDB Aviation, a wholly owned Irish subsidiary of China Development Bank Financial Leasing (CDB Leasing), has commenced the deliveries of three Airbus A320neos to a new customer, Denver-based low-fare carrier Frontier Airlines as part of a sale-and-leaseback transaction.

The LEAP-1A engine-powered aircraft, delivering from Airbus’ A320 Family jetliner final assembly line in Mobile, Alabama, are bound for an immediate entry into passenger service on U.S. domestic routes.

Both the lessor and airline teams took the opportunity to commemorate a milestone delivery as one of the aircraft, Chinook the Gray Wolf, became the 100th A320 member of Frontier’s fleet, in addition to the other two aircraft named Cortez the Green Turtle and Parish & Daisy the Burrowing Owls.
