CDB Aviation, a wholly owned Irish subsidiary of China Development Bank Financial Leasing Co., Limited (CDB Leasing), has delivered the first of two Boeing 737-800 aircraft to Sun Country, a Minnesota-based, hybrid low-cost airline. The aircraft are configured with 183 seats in a single economy-class layout and will be operated on seasonal, point-to-point routes. The second aircraft’s delivery is anticipated in early 2022.
“We are excited to commence a new and valued partnership with CDB Aviation. These two aircraft are key to meeting our near-term growth plans and reflect Sun Country’s exceptional ability to grow its fleet with strategic partners throughout the world,” said Thomas Frey, Sun Country’s Director of Fleet and Fuel.
