Accipiter Holdings, a Dublin-based leasing company, has signed a purchase agreement to acquire 20 A320neo aircraft. The order had been completed in March 2019, and was listed in the order books as undisclosed.
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.
