Airbus Sells A Bundle of A220's

2 More Gucci Private ACJ TwoTwenty's Sold

Airbus has moved some more of its A220 family aircraft, with a deal to Fort Lauderdale, Florida-based aircraft lessor Azorra.

The outfit focuses on "executive, regional, and mid-size aircraft", making their selection of 20 A220-300S and 2 of the premium, executive ACJ TwoTwenty a nice fit with their established fleet of "turnkey aircraft solutions".

Azorra's purchase adds to the slowly warming reception for ACJ's new private bizjet A220-100, which recently delivered the first production model to partner Comlux for cabin fitment and completion. The jet's release in late 2020 came at a strange time for the aviation industry, then in the midst of pandemic response and slumping travel demand. Its timing may be fortuitous going forward, given the increasing demand for business aviation and private travel capability worldwide. The TwoTwenty brings a unique offering to the Azorra fleet, grantin intercontinental range with prodigious personal space for its lucky passengers. The first of the type are expected to enter service in early 2023, once completed by Comlux.

The addition of the A220 joins a smattering of aircraft from around the globe in Azorra's fleet, where it will enter service alongside rival 737 MAX aircraft, as well as a slate of Embraer E series and Bombardier CRJs. The most up-to-date spec for the A220 brings the latest generation of PW1500G engines, boasting a noise footprint reduced by 50% of prior iterations, as well as 25% lower fuel burn and halved NOx emissions. The statements regarding the deal from the duo point to a growing relationship between the two, which could indicate a further expansion of the fleet in the near future.

“We are also thrilled with the opportunity to expand Azorra’s executive jet leasing business with the new ACJ TwoTwenty," said Azorra CEO John Evans. "Azorra’s new partnership with Airbus and unique ability to offer fleet transition solutions for airlines and executive jet leases to business aviation customers are key differentiators that bring significant value to our customers.” 

“We warmly welcome Azorra as a new Airbus partner and salute this decision by a renowned player in the regional aviation space. We have seen a significant market appetite for the A220 Family from a growing and diverse customer base. The addition of Azorra’s capabilities in the regional airline segment is a welcome endorsement for the A220 versatility,” said Airbus CEO Christian Scherer. “This agreement will enhance Azorra’s portfolio strategy of investing in the most comfortable and modern technology aircraft in this segment while it will also enable us to offer A220 Family solutions to an increasingly wider spectrum of airlines”, he added.
