"We are pleased to start this new partnership with JetBlue and demonstrate our ability to quickly execute large-scale sale-leasebacks despite the challenging backdrop that COVID-19 presents," said Austin Wiley, Chief Executive Officer SKY Leasing. "The A321NEO and the JetBlue relationship represents the foundation of our strategy focusing on sale-leasebacks with top tier airlines on new and next generation technology."
