Dublin-based leasing company Accipiter Holdings was disclosed as the customer for 20 previously unannounced A320neo orders. Those orders were completed in March 2019 and listed as an undisclosed customer.
The new single-aisle aircraft will further expand the portfolio of Accipiter Holdings, which aims to be a leading player in the global leasing market and is wholly owned by Hong Kong’s CK Asset Holdings Ltd. Together with Vermillion, its joint venture with Mitsubishi Corporation subsidiary MC Aviation Partners (MCAP), Accipiter manages a total portfolio of just under 150 owned and committed aircraft.
Engine selection will be made at a later date.
