"The A320neo is proving to be a very popular aircraft due to its economics and low fuel burn," said Abulqasim Abdulghaffar Redha, ALAFCO Executive Vice President. "We anticipate strong demand from leasing customers and we look forward to helping them meet their requirements."
"We're taking neo orders from all corners of the world, from both airlines and leasing companies because we've hit a sweet spot in the market. An aircraft which offers a 15% reduction in fuel burn is proving to be irresistible," said John Leahy, Chief Operating Officer Customers.
