CIT Group announced from the Farnborough International Air Show that CIT Aerospace has signed memorandums of understanding with Airbus for 15 A330-900neo (new engine option) aircraft and five A321-200ceo (current engine option) aircraft. Deliveries of the A330-900neo are scheduled to begin in 2018 and deliveries of the A321-200ceo are scheduled to begin in 2015.

“As one of the largest aircraft lessors in the world, we are pleased to be able to once again partner with Airbus on the newest variant of the A330, as well as their A320 program,” said Jeff Knittel, President of CIT Transportation & International Finance. “These new aircraft will allow CIT to maintain one of the youngest and most technologically advanced fleets in the industry, while providing fuel efficient aircraft solutions to our customers though a range of sizes and categories of aircraft.”

Fabrice Brégier, Airbus President and CEO, said, “We are delighted to see CIT, one of the leading aircraft lessors in the world, stepping up to become one of the first customers for our recently launched A330neo. This is a strong guarantee that our newest, most cost-efficient, medium range Widebody aircraft is set to become yet another Airbus best-seller. CIT’s continuing appetite for our highly competitive largest single-aisle model, the A321, is evidence that the market is growing and is looking for increased capacity, productivity and the best standard of cabin comfort, all key attributes of the best-selling A320 Family.”
