ILFC orders 50 additional A320neo family aircraft

ILFC signed (17-Jun-2013) a firm contract with Airbus for the purchase of 50 additional A320neo family aircraft. ILFC was the first lessor to commit to the A320neo family with a firm order placed in 2011 for 100 aircraft. With this latest order, ILFC increases its total firm A320neo order tally to 150. ILFC will make its engine selection for the aircraft at a later date. Including this latest contract, ILFC remains Airbus’ largest customer, having ordered a combined total of 769 single-aisle and widebody Airbus aircraft. At the end of May-2013, firm orders for the A320neo stood at 2125 from 40 customers, making it the fastest selling commercial airliner ever.
